  • Can anyone help source diamante beads?

    Hello,

    I'm very new on here, so I hope you don't mind me asking a question.

    I am a fledging tiara designer, using mainly Swarovski crystal beads and pearls. However, I've been asked to design something using diamontes, and for the life of me, I can't find a reasonable supplier. I've never worked with diamontes before so I'm unsure whether I need to buy them already in their mounts with the holes at the back, or whether I need to buy them loose and then mount them in myself.

    Can anyone point me towards a good supplier, or give me any tips?

    Thanks! Much appreciated.

      Thank you so much, Seahorse. What are they called, do you know? Can't immediately see them on that site.

        Where have you been hiding this site? The swarovski prices are very good - do you use them much Seahorse?

            Sorry White fairy, I cant find them either but Im sure I got them from there.I still have them.I can post you some examples if you wish.Best to email them, they are very friendly.

            Nope, I hid this one in my sock draw.I think Jillybeads are the bast prices for swarovski but beadsolutions are a close runner up, Ive used them about 3/4 times.Love their table diamonds.

                Sorry to ask a stupid question, I'm still new to this, but how would you attach these stones to a handmade tiara? Wire? Glue or something else??

                  As you`re in Tamworth, have you tried Spellbound Beads in Lichfield?

                    Hello

                    They are called montees. I usually get them from firemountaingems in USA but did a google and found Tryacstreasures.co.uk they have them too.

                    Hope this helps

                    Saw you in wedding ideas newsletter, your tiaras are great.
