Help! Does it matter what type of rhinestone I use? Will a crystal rhinestone look better then an AB rhinestone? Will the price increase if AB crystal is used(cost"s a bit more) and by how much? Do I even mention the AB rhinestones to my clients? Thank you

I carry both and regular crystal is the top seller. AB has rainbow tint. Cost for AB isn't that much-except pink-for some reason any type of pink is more expensive.

shine art usa. you can google their web site. Most around here use them. you will need to call them to get a price sheet and samples. I would start off using their economy stones.

Cannot resist. One day asking for stone advice, and where to purchase - and the next day already have samples in hand and pushing them. Very interesting indeed.

Lol...I had been asking people before I found this wonderful forum and no one had been able to tell me anything. I wasn't brought up that way, you ask me, I not only tell you, I'll take you! I recieved my samples today. I just thought it was the correct way to share my experience with you both as well. No bad intention.
