Talking how to seal rhinestone trim?

Hi all,

I'm sure you have seen plenty of those shinny rhinestone headbands or beaded headbands. I made a beaded one for my daughter, just for trying but encountered a problem that can't figure out.

I noticed all the beads on the trim are held by clear plastic "fishing line look alike" thread. When you cut it, all the beads become lose. I tried to heat seal but it will still keep coming off.

Suggestions?

Not sure which trim you are referring to. I use rhinestone mesh all the time and even when you cut it, nothing comes loose. I do need to heat seal the edges otherwise there are little strings hanging off that are not pretty.

Do you have a picture of the trim you use?

Actually, the one I'm referring to is a beaded one.
Adding a picture of a similar one. This is NOT mine; just for visualization purposes :-)

Hmmm- that is a tough one for sure. I think you probably have to tie off the ends some how, but I have no idea what the best method would be.

You might try stitching over right around where you want to cut it and then cutting off just after your stitching. The idea is that the stitching would hold the strings of the beads in place so the next ones don't fall off.

That's all I can think of though.

Try to use hot melt glue to seal the the spot you are going to cut (both side). And then cut the trim really close to the glue line.

Thanks
