  • Flat Back Rhinestones - Question

    HI everyone!

    I am new to the forum!

    I am always crafting and my most recent craft is decorating things with rhinestones!

    My question is - what are the best, most reasonable crystals that are available?

    I know from experience that Swarovski are by far the best quality but find them very expensive - for example for a phone cover I could need 800+

    If I was to decide to sell items it wouldn't be profitable to use Swarovski...

    Does anyone use crystals and can help?

    Thank you!

    P.S. Wasn't sure whether this fitted in the 'Beads' forum...

      Thank you LadyLizard!

      What do you use them for?

      Is there any particular make that you would suggest?

      I started my first project (a phone cover) with Swarovski AB then bought some cheaper DMC ones and there is a difference in colour - the Swarovski ones are pinky, the DMC ones are bluey/greeny....
