Lightbulb How to do "bling items?? Swarovski??

hello everyone!

I was looking around on ebay and I found some stuff that I want to try and make. It's all "Bling" items. I am wanting to use Swarovski crystals, but I never have before. I was wondering:

1. Where to get the crystals
2. How to attach them
3. What tools to get (if any) to attach them

Thanks sooo much for your help!

Most of the things that I will be attaching the crystals to are either wood or plastic.

Here is a thread about the hot fix tool. I don't use these crystals or this tool, but thought this might help!

I know that'll it probably take forever, but I'm sure it'll be less expensive than buying it on ebay. They are selling for over $50 PLUS you have to pay shipping!! YIKES!!

Where do they carry the hotfix tools? And where do you buy your crystals from?? (obviously i'm going to need a lot!)

What size do you think I should use? I just did a search on ebay and realized there were a ton of different sizes.

Also, what's the normal price for rhinestones?

(sorry for the 20 questions! )


THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!

What is the difference between the Blue BeJeweler and the Pink BeJeweler. I have been searching also. Not sure which one is the best to buy.
