SWAROVSKI 2000 Columbine Membership - INCLUDES Stand and Plaque. Complete Columbine Set.

NOTES: In the Commedia dell'arte, Columbine is a mistress of disguise and an expert at flirtation, involved in a classic "eternal triangle" situation. She toys unashamedly with Pierrot's emotions, who is completely enthralled with her, but she is really in love with the inconstant Harlequin, who resolutely attempts to avoid any kind of amorous entanglement. Columbine, together with Pierrot and Harlequin, frequently becomes involved in intrigues. Perhaps more importantly, she is equally capable of setting up plots and of concealing them. She appears in numerous disguises, creating misunderstanding and confusion, effortlessly solving even the most complex schemes with a subtle mix of guile and feminine intuition. She finds ways out of seemingly hopeless situations, conceals her mistress's lover and protects her in numerous other ways, but never fails to let her know exactly what she thinks.Columbine is a full-blooded comedienne in a constellation that has always fascinated and moved the world. As a go- between and one who suffers herself in the never-ending game with feelings, longings and little vanities, she is a character who remains constantly in control and extracts the humour out of numerous all-too-human situations. She is attractive, seductive and slightly coquettish, combing an engaging charm with a remarkably quick tongue.

Swarovski bio

Swarovski is the luxury brand name for the range of precision-cut lead crystal glass products produced by companies owned by Swarovski AG of Feldmeilen, near Zürich, Switzerland. The Swarovski Group also includes Tyrolit (makers of abrasive and cutting tools); Swareflex (reflective and luminous road markings); Signity (synthetic gemstones); and Swarovski Optik (optical instruments). The company runs a crystal-themed indoor theme park, Swarovski Kristallwelten (Crystal Worlds) at its original Wattens site (near Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria). Swarovski was also a sponsor for The Phantom of the Opera (2004 film), in which the "standing model" of the chandelier was composed of Swarovski crystals. A Swarovski shop window is also visible later in the film. However, the current swan logo, instead of the edelweiss flower which would have been the case in the era the film was set, appears. Swarovski crystal was born when Bohemian-born Daniel Swarovski invented an automatic cutting machine in 1892. In 1895 the Swarovski company was founded when he established a crystal cutting factory in Wattens. Here he could take advantage of local hydroelectricity for the energy-intensive grinding processes he had patented. Swarovski crystal contains approximately 32% lead to maximize refraction. The Swarovski Crystal range includes crystal sculptures and miniatures, jewelry and couture, home decor and chandeliers. They also sell beads and rhinestones, encouraging other manufacturers, artists and consumers to create their own designs. In order to create a crystal that allows light to refract in a rainbow spectrum, Swarovski coats some of its crystals with special metallic chemical coatings. Aurora Borealis, or "AB", is one of the most popular coatings, and gives the surface a rainbow oil slick appearance. Other coatings include Crystal Transmission, Volcano, Aurum, and Dorado. Coatings may be applied to only part of an object; others are coated twice, and thus are designated AB 2X, Dorado 2X etc
