Rhinestone Covered Beads with Best Glue Ever!

Good Morning ScraPerfect Friends! Chelsea here to share with you a lovely rhinestone covered bead for earrings, pendants, zipper pulls or any other creative project.  With my finished rhinestone covered beads I created a set of earrings using the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie. 

Here are the supplies you will need :

Best Glue Ever
Embellie Gellie
Soccer Ball Style Large Beads

I had some large black acrylic beads in my bead stash collection that looked a little drab and plain. Normally a person would grab their jewelry glue but it's full of toxins and fumes. I had never thought to use the BGE in a jewelry project before but wanted to give it a try. 

To begin, I placed small dabs of glue everywhere that I wanted to attach a rhinestone too. Letting the glue dry clear and tacky. 

Once the glue was tacky; which only took a few minutes, I used my Embellie Gellie to pick up each of the rhinestones to place them on the clear tacky glue spots. 

*NOTE : I am working on a beading mat which is like a foam piece of fabric. I was completely impressed that even on a soft surfaces the Embellie Gellie still was able to grab on and lift up the rhinestones! I was even able to use the Embellie Gellie to flip over the upside down rhinestones - Quickly and easily. 

This is what my new rhinestone covered beads looks like.

After turning my drab, plain beads into gorgeous rhinestone covered beads I decided to make them into a pair of earrings.  Here are the completed earrings. Fabulous for a night on the town! 

Thanks for stopping by!
