    Hello Everyone! I am currently working with my florist to get my flowers designed and I was wondering if anyone knows where you can buy the little crystals to insert in your bouquets and centerpieces. I am looking for something like this:

    I am willing to buy new or buy some from anyone that has them left over from their wedding. I want probably 30 of them. Thanks!!

        I bought a Starfish bouquet jewel from this site: http://www.bouquetje...ea/star-sea.htm and I LOVE IT!!! The prices were pretty reasonable and I was very happy with how it looked when it came in.

          you can get them on ebay. I saw a few shops that had them. I'm making mine myself. So if you can't find what your looking for that is always an opition

            I like the starfish idea. That's really cute and simple!!

            I hadn't looked at ebay. Whenever I typed it into google all these flower shops come up and the prices are pretty ridiculous! I bet ebay would be way better.

            Thank you :)

              I just understood what you meant when you said that. Are you using swarovskis? What are you using for the stem? And are you using bicones or what? That's a great idea and I hadn't thought of it at all! I make beaded jewelry as a hobby so I guess I could just buy some 6 or 8 mm bicones and attach them to a wire stem...

                I got the stems from hobby lobby 70 pcs. for .89 cents. we are doing our colors in orange and pink, everywhere I have seen that doesn't want to charge you an arm and a leg only offer clear colors and want to charge an extra 20$ for pink and orange. Yes I'm doing to get orange and pink swarovski bicones and make them myself. I've also ordered seahorse charms,I'm going to attempt to use them as well.
                the stems I'm using is 2" head pin. I'm sure since you make jewelry you have seen them before in the craft section. It took me a while to find them, and I got the lastones they had at our hobby lobby. So if you can't find any let me know and I can send you some of the ones I have. (they are bronze in color)
                And I was playing around earlier with them, Idon't have the colors I need but I did have some bicones so I was attaching them and making different ones for reference. I think it took me a total of 9 seconds to do 1 stem. VERY SIMPLE!

                  Good luck.

                    I will check out Michaels. I am now all excited about the thought of making them myself though! It will be waaayy cheaper and really easy! I'm excited :) I will post a picture once I get them done.
