I own a rhinestones and rhinestud company so I am very familiar with the stone sizes. You probably picked up SS6 (or 2mm) which are tiny. The size I use most is ss10 or 3mm. I also use ss16 which is 4mm. I have used 5mm also, but not very often.

ayesha, I'm glad you posted this because I am new to the crystal craze and wasn't sure what to buy either.

shell.....what numbers go along with the 5mm? Like you said the ss16 was 4mm.

Based on the pattern she posted, I'm going to guess the 5mm is ss20, but lets' let shell confirm
