UPDATE: 6/16/2010 - Hey everyone!
I am in the midst of fixing all ghost photos in this guide after I mistakenly changed the privacy settings in my Flickr account. The missing photos will need to be embedded as new links, so please bear with me as I first locate each photo. In the meantime, If you have any questions regarding crystals, please feel free to PM me (member name, dissociated). Thanks! -Jenny
Ok, I'm just going to post all the info I know in regards to crystallized/studded jeans and where you can get the embellishments because I get lots of PMs about this stuff. List still needs a lot of work, formatting, organization, and help from y'all!
Oh, and the best place to get nailhead studs (you know, the ones with the prongs) is Swarovski Rhinestone Heart Swarovski Rhinestone Flat Back Acrylic Rhinestones. He has a large selection.
For single crystals, best place is Swarovski Beads, Silver Beads, Glass Beads, Charms, Clasps, Alphabet Beads, Jewelry Wire - Artbeads.com.
Rhinestoneshop.com is also a good place (cheaper than artbeads), but sells only packets of 144 crystals (1 gross). Also, he doesn't have size 8ss hotfix. Swarovski Rhinestone Heart Swarovski Rhinestone Flat Back Acrylic Rhinestones also has crystals, but i think the minimum quantity is 2 gross, depending on the color and size.
