Questions Answered

Dear Constant Reader,

I’m running a little contest to give away a fun and educational book. All you have to do is leave me a question on this post before midnight on Wednesday.

As you ask questions, I’ll answer them, as best I can.

Red Snapper asks: Where do you get your bulk rhinestones? I tend to shop locally and mix the grades of stones, but I’d love to buy bulk Swarovskis online if it’s more cost effective. I assume your stones for the pasties were an online purchase.

She’s talking about these pasties that we’re wearing at The Expo. I got the stones at Fire Mountain Gems. They’re a great resource for bulk rhinestones. You can buy by the dozen, the gross, and 10 gross. If you buy more than 15 units of anything, your price goes down. They don’t have every color, but their selection has gotten much better since I started shopping there years ago.

For smaller orders, I like Artbeads. They frequently have sales on Swarovski elements (like right now).

Always happy to do my part to make more shiny in the world.
