    Well, if they're rhinestones by the yard, you just stitch it down between every rhinestone with some heavy duty thread. Probably waxed D.

    If they're singles, put them on with their little attaching thingies, or glue!:p Then bead around them.

      I stitch rhinestones down. Just look at them as beads that are attached to each other. They can be hard to find, but you might be able to find them in a good craft or fabric store. I'm from Sask. too and the only place I've ever bought them is at L&L in Wetaskiwin. They have a good selection, different sizes and colors. They're usually about $18 CDN per yard.
      As for bead size I use size 11 if I'm making something basic, which is the same size as the beads on my entire outfit. But if you want to get fancy and make those complicated & really detailed designs you'd be better off using smaller sized beads, and the smaller the bead the bigger the size number

          OOPS! I meant $18 per METER.

          "$3.00 a meter" ?!?! That's unbelievable! I don't think I've ever heard of them being sold that cheap anywhere. "She" can get them that cheap, but only she can or what? Then there's shipping & handling right? How does that work, because that's definitely a steal... sounds too good to be true!

              Mixing Beads
              by BeadMan
              In response to the thread on favorite beads, I'd like to spin in a slightly different direction and ask about mixing beads. BLACKBEAR used "matte with luster" beads, TIGGER uses "regular with translucent," ALASKASHADOWWOLF uses "translucent for the outline and opaque for the...

              Hi Folks:

              I have a pair of mocs that my gran made me about 25 years ago out of smoked moose hide, beaded, lined with shearling and trimmed with beaver. They have always been my favourites and I was saddened to see the heel on one foot has finally just plain worn out and the beading thread...

              What beads are you using?
              by TallmanFL
              Most good beadworkers know that you can't make fine beadwork without starting with quality materials.

              These days a lot of people seem to be using transparent beads with a lot of shine to them. So lets hear about what type of beads you are using, (size, style, Czech, French, other?)...

              Suggestions for Needles
              by generic username
              Where do you get your needles from?

              Most of my work has been 11/0 on loom, and locally the only places I've been able to get anything from is the Hobby Lobby (not much in the way of trading posts where I'm at, not many NDNs here, but I digress). I ventured recently, after a long beading...

              Hi everyone,
              I'm new here, and I could really use some advice about beads. I'm getting ready to start a new dress (northern buckskin), just working out the colors and whatnot. I was looking at an online bead catalog, it's huge and they have stuff listed that I've never used before....
