In a universe far away, exists a crystal palace. For 150 years, it has been a very popular place, attracting royalty and heads of state with its fine glassworks. Unbeknownst to many, it is also home to princesses who dress in crystals as fine as diamonds that light up the skies.
Everything is made of crystal including their elaborate crowns.
Sometimes those crowns have a way of distorting their beauty.
Or is it the other way around? Three eyes, two noses, all is not what it appears to be. Does that make it more or less beautiful?
One night the head princess decided to throw a party.
She imagined it would be the grandest event in the universe. Her table, itself made of the finest cut glass, stretched from one end of infinity to the next.
So much to do. So much to plan!
She ran here and there to locate the finest crystal for the event.
She would have others help her, perhaps.
Gunilla, wearing her Baccarat crystal skirt, was thrilled to get the invitation. She brought with her, a majestic urn of crystal.
She imagined how she would dance! But would she break her skirt?
She remembered how Stella left the last party in pieces!
Meanwhile Isabela could not decide what to wear. She knew in any case it must sparkle and shine!
She discovered by smashing her precious crystal, it would take on the appearance of rare gems.
She also discovered that fire would bring about an unexpected warmth to her otherwise icy look.
Even Lana was tempted to give in to this look.The diamonds now resembled gold! Or copper!?! Appearances are deceiving!
But then she thought, "We need not throw stones to be beautiful. After all, that which glitters is NOT necessarily gold nor diamonds." And with that she, and the other princesses went back to their origins. Pure unadulturated crystal crowns that sparkled with natural, luminous beauty!
