UPDATED 7/2/08: FAQ answers to crystal/stud colors *under construction*

post #1 of 21

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.

Victoria Beckham Stockholm Crystal Crown Jeans

TIA!
I suck at figuring out the crystal color just from the picture. Can you take a close up using the macro setting without flash in the daylight? Or do calibrate your camera's white balance and take a close up (no flash)?

I can't even tell what color those crowns are. My guess is that they are crystal AB, but that guess is wild without basis.

EDIT: A little more certain/guess is a bit less wild; I think those are 12ss crystal AB.

The crystal colors for the GLCP Flynts are not correct I was missing some of the pink crystals and ordered light peach but those are the lightest ones (the gold ones that you thought were light colorado). Any idea what the pink ones are? Could they be vintage rose?



BTW, the wash of the crystal roths with montana crystals is Glycerine!

No problem! At least I can use the light peach whenever I would need to replace some of the other crystals. Sorry, I meant light topaz and not light colorado!

But I'm 100% sure that the light crystals are light peach so we just need to find out what the pink ones are,... I have already ordered vintage rose and will let you know as soon as I get them if they are the right color!

well, i guess the stud thing is all a matter of taste. I personally like crystals, with the exception being the tricolor havana a pocket studs. Other than that, I don't like studded jeans too much (eg., the great china wall studs...too much for me).

mimichuachua - I suggest using some form of epoxy glue (e.g., fabric cement) for small volume crystallizing work, such as little embellishments here and there. The extremely strong, industrial strength form is something called e5000? i can't remember exactly - it's really really strong...like, carcinogen-strong. So, avoid when you can use something else. you can get glue at Rhinestoneshop.com for great prices or Beads and Beading - Swarovski Crystal Beads - Artbeads.com.

Swarovski crystals are expensive, so I prefer using cheaper crystals for things like my cell phones or ipods (unless they're more important to me than my jeans... )
good luck guys! Jenny

Are you talking about the black ones? For some reason, i'm totally blanking on what color vancouver wash is. If i'm correct, they are crystal AB in size 8ss. Sorry...totally losing it...i'm in finals week right now.

crystal crowns always have "crystal AB hotfix SS12" on their backpockets

exception:
crystal red crown: these are "siam hotfix SS12"
