For over a decade Natalie Daghestani has been a professional crystal artist.
As former Founder and Creative Director of Crystyled in the UK and UAE, Natalie's work has consisted of hand gluing thousands of Swarovski crystals in a mosaic style, permanently on to a product's surface. Stockists of Natalie's Crystyled pieces included Harrods and Selfridges & Co. London, with many U.S and U.K celebrities and international Royals making up her clientele with custom commissions.
Natalie has combined her love of painting with her expertly honed crystallization skills, to create unique and eye-catching portraits and pieces of art accented with Swarovski crystals, pearls, glitter and various mixed media under the name BSAB - a descriptive acronym for the medium she uses to create her artworks – Brush Strokes and Bling and #BSABart.
Her most recent work includes a five piece tribute collection of mixed media artworks dedicated to the memory of HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Nahyan, created to pay respect to the great leader and celebrate Year of Zayed. This collection will be on display at BRIDE Abu Dhabi.
Her most notable works to date also include “Members of the UAE Royal Family Swarovski Crystallized Portrait Collection”, which comprises of 5 portraits made up of over 2 million individually, hand applied glass beads, pearls and Swarovski crystals, that took a staggering 1 and a half years for her to complete and will also be on display during the course of the show.
Based in Dubai, the British born artist works from her private home studio, accepting worldwide commissions.
