    online source for rhinestone banding

    I get all my rhinestone banding from eJoyce.com:

    welcom to eJoyce.com

    These are the high-quality Swarovski rhinestones, and you can get them in different finishes with different colors of embedded-thread, etc. And, they give discount for bulk purchases in 10-yard cards. I mainly use the Crystal AB finish with clear thread

    Yes, I will post it along with a link to the auction. For once, I'm beading something strictly for sale. We're remodeling my gma's old house and really need the extra money.

    I was planning the beaded set along with mocs and leggings and a matching jingle dress. But after seeing how much some nicer beaded sets are going for...I'll just sell the set with the option for the other matching items.

    I thought it would make a nice straight line for the beads to follow, but now that I'm starting, I see the beads make a better line for the rhinestones to follow.

    Mine was obtained at a powwow too, for $10/yard. It was getting dark and they were dazzling, so I bought the one that was sparkling the bestest. Now I'm designing the outfit around it. Just wish I bought another yard.

    it all depends on how it is incorporated into the design for me... if mine is edging i do it last but if its like in the middle of the design i put it on first. alsoi glue mine first with embellishing glue...from joannas i think... then i sew it. it doesnt dry hard so the needle goes right through.

    I sew my stones on first and after I"m done beading then I glue the first and last stone. I learned the hard way, I was told to glue first and broke many needles.
    I buy my stones on line, last time I bought them on line the company gave me a bunch of yards for free for ordering from them and I got them 2 days later after I put in my order.

    I was wondering who has the most decent prices

    I am looking to stock up on my beading supplies I never have enough lol. Is there a place online that has reasonable prices. I have not bought anything in a long time I have my own stuff and when my mom passed I inherited all her stuff But I dont really want to use her stuff right now. I now prices have sky rocketed I am almost afraid to look. at what a hank costs.

    If I am gonna use it as edging then it would go on last but if I use it in the middle of the design then it goes first..easier that way..glue it down first n then tack it down every other rhinestone...

    I sew mine on first but that's just me. Regardless whether it is on the inside of a design or outside as a border, I do it first. But then again, I always do my border first whether it is beads or rhinestones, that's just how I was taught to bead. I think you can do it either way. If it's straight lines, before or after would be about the same. On the curvier, detailed stuff, I would think it would be easier before because you never know quite how it will lay. Hope this helps out some.

    Do you sew the banding on first or last? I was thinking first so you have nice straight lines, but now that I look at it, I am thinking maybe put it on last??


    I used it to line my sons head band for his fancy dance out fit.. and i sewed it on last as an edging.. it turned out nice... straight lines.. (but it was also an after thought) i put it on after i decided his headbanded needed to bling...

    i never thought about putting it on first... (maybe if it was on the inside of a design instead of as a border like i did) good luck with it!

    Material to bead on
    by lynn
    Anybody use that stiff felt to bead on? Does anyone know how durable it is? It's easy to bead with, but I don't really know how long it will last or if it stretches when wet.
