glass crystals?

Post by cam bortz » Tue Feb 23, 2010 6:45 pm

Rick used to sell glass "watch crystals" in different sizes and colors. I just spoke to Kristi at Letterhead supply and they have only one size, about a half inch diameter. I'd like to find other sizes, any suggestions?

Ebay. Get the glass ones though, not the plastic.

Here's 100....for a buck!

Cam,
I had to do some searching in my old puter to find this site.
Try this address:
http://www.mcgillsglass.com
They have 225 different ones. I think they are in California.
This may have been Rick's supplier.
Good Luck

Mcgill has crystals and glass jewels, They are in different sections of the web site. The faceted jewels are flat on one side, for surface applications, and the crystals are faceted on both sides. The colored jewels look good with silver behind them. I used ruby red and silvered the back side and it looked great. I just designed iron sign bracket for a women accessories store that we are going to install crystals into metal circles in the bracket.

Ps Mcgills has lots of fun items worth looking at. Reasonably cheap too.
