DIY Where to Buy Affordable Rhinestones from Bromeliad here. In a previous post on her blog there was a discussion about how it was often cheaper to BUY and not DIY jewelry - especially jewelry with rhinestones in settings. This post has several links for very affordable rhinestones. In a comment I made on her post about when to Buy instead of DIY I wrote that there are many DIYs I do not post because I add up the cost of the DIY (going to the linked supplies, etc…) and sometimes it’s just so much cheaper to buy. Several blogs that I won’t mention continue to post very expensive DIYs linking their supplies to site I also won’t mention.
