Rhinestone banding is popular for contemporary indigenous beadwork. It features a crystal set in a plastic and strung together. These rhinestones are strung together tightly, so this banding is not as flexible as other bandings. Chinese banding is the more economical option. While still a very high quality, it is not as durable as the Czech Rhinestone Banding. We do not recommend this product for powwow regalia or other items that will experience a lot of wear and tear. However, it is a great option for earrings, jewelry or other items that will experience light use.
These sew-on crystals have a flat back and holes that allow them to be sewn down securely. These crystals are hardy and can withstand some wear and tear. However, they can get scratched if not properly stored. Do not let crystals rub against each other or against glass beads. If used on powwow regalia, we recommend storing in a dark place, between layers of soft fabric.
Rhinestone banding made in China. Sew-On crystals made in Austria.
