Resin rhinestone beads are soft round beads decorated with a combination of glitzy rhinestones.
Rhinestone beads have been popular for centuries with origins dating back to the thirteenth century. More recent history connects them with the River Rhine in Austria where rock crystals were discovered and made into imitation diamonds hundreds of years ago.
Rhinestone beads’ attraction shows no signs of waning and they have been further popularised by their inclusion in the ‘must have’ jewellery item of recent times, the Shamballa bracelet. They are also used to decorate clothing and other non-jewellery ornaments and trinkets.
The resin rhinestone bead collection at The Bead Shop contains a wealth of shades and colours which can contribute to a number of different necklace, earrings and bracelets themes.
Affordably priced, our resin rhinestone beads are popular as spacer beads and equally, as a focal point to your jewellery design.
At The Bead Shop our resin rhinestone bead collection is wide and diverse. You can choose from 10mm or 12 mm sizes and there are many colours to choose including black, hematite, red, bronze, gold rainbow and peacock. Hole sizes are all approximately 1.5 mm.
If you have decided you want to work with resin rhinestone beads then you will need some basic jewellery making tools if you don’t already have them. Try our Precision Electric Rhinestone Applicator designed to provide extra help with those sometimes fiddly pieces. You can also use it for pearls, Hot-fix crystals and NailHeads.
Resin rhinestone beads can be hung on a number of different stringing materials for your necklace or bracelet. Browse through our variety of threading options which includes Shamballa Chinese knotting cord, Beadsmith nylon and Fireline beading thread. You could even choose to hang your beads on one of our necklace chokers.
If you are giving your rhinestone bead creation as a gift then have a look at our organza gift bags which we sell in a range of different colours and themes.
The Bead Smith storage boxes are also useful for separating your bead collection into styles and sizes. Beadsmith sticky bead mats which allow you to see all your beads in one glance while keeping them still and separate, allow for a clean and organised working space.
