Q U A N T I T Y: 24 C O L O R: Crystal AB (rainbow finish) D I M E N S I O N S: 3mm (about 1/8")
Top quality NOS (new old stock), Vintage Austrian (aka Swarovski) crystal rhinestones set into metal cross channels. These are clear crystal glass with an aurora borealis (AB, or rainbow) finish with sharp, sparkling facets.
Ooh la la -- I love these vintage rose montees for so many things: ~~You can use them for wire work (in vintage jewelry you see these wired to costume jewelry bases), with a new or vintage feel. ~~You can stitch them to fabric to create art quilts, embroidered jewelry, applique, etc. ~~Of course you can glue them to things -- they are especially awesome in mixed media paintings attached with gel medium, etc. ~~My friend Rita even uses these in beaded loomwork, stringing them onto the warp threads, and weaving through them here and there with the weft threads.
Rose Montees are rhinestones set into base metal cross channels. Mine are vintage, at least 50 years old, and the glass has nice sharp facets for lots of sparkle, even in the smallest sizes I carry.
Previously uncirculated vintage stock.
