We purchase most of our materials directly from the manufacturer. So our Swarovski crystals are coming directly from Swarovski. Instead of purchasing our jewelry and suncatchers from other manufacturers we make and design our own. That means that we control the quality and we know what goes into each piece. We make our items with quality materials and quality workmanship, and we stand by them. We have very strict manufacturing standards. Many of the other online stores make items with lower quality crystal, lower quality materials, and less attention to detail. We work to create our own designs. We strive to be the one that others want to copy. Everyone deserves a quality crystal piece. J'Leen works hard to make sure that our crystal suncatchers are the quality you are looking for.
