1. Choose several stones in the size you plan to use. 2. Create a 1" square on a piece of paper. 3. Fill the square with the crystals in the manner in which you plan to complete your project — either Adjacent placement or Alternate placement, as described on pg. 24. 3 more stones for the Alternate placement. 4. Count the number of stones in your square — this is the number of stones per square inch. Now measure your project’s length and height, and multiply this number to get the approximate number of square inches in the project.

12ss Siam crystals were interspersed around them. 8. Bead a chain, if desired. TIP Covering the entire surface on a large area will still result in some spacing irregularities — that’s because it is hand-crafted, and it is part of the charm of doing it yourself! So don’t beat yourself up if it’s not perfect. My example wasn’t perfect, either, but I found a way to mask the imperfections. I took a crystal brooch that I haven’t worn for years and pinned it on the front of the bag, covering any irregularities in the rhinestone placement.

This spacing does not have to be tight — the looser the spacing, the fewer stones you will use overall. Just be consistent throughout the project! Remove the loose rhinestone and place it next to the second glued stone, again without gluing this one, and adhere another rhinestone next to this loose one. Repeat across the row. 3. Using a straight edge lined up next to the glued row, draw a line just above the first with the disappearing ink. Use this line as a guide for placing the rhinestones on the next row.
