Topic rhinestones are falling off... Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

I have these cute apple hairclips, with the apples made out of pink rhinestones. Unfortunately, with only a few wearings, two rhinestones have fallen off!

How can I replace them and how do I make sure the other ones stay on???

have you worn them in the rain? I know a lot of times when I wear hair clips in the rain (on accident of course) they almost always fall apart.

Other then that I can just think maybe the glue sucks or if it has prongs they are not tight enough.

I had an Enid COllins box purse and a few Rhinestones came off, I used some epoxy/goop stuff and it worked well.

But where does one find rhinestones?

These barrettes are strictly for dry days now...

Most bead stores have loose rhinestones - just ask. As they get swiped they usually keep them behind the counter.

I got some at Pearl Art and Craft, they were 3.19 for 200 tiny ones in assorted colors. Also they sell jewel glue for 1.99 which works on fabric and doesn't make the stones cloudy. Funny that you asked a rhinestone question b/c i've been working with them all weekend for the 1st time :)
