Enreverie,

Where did you get your 8mm squaredelles from? I love working with the Swarovski cubes and haven't been able to find decent sized squaredelles in the craft stores ( Michael's or A.C. Moore) and I'm not sure where to get them online other that Etsy or Amazon. Love this tutorial! great directions and photos!

Thanks Webwitch!! Hmm, I do remember having trouble tracking these down. Especially since I didnt know what they were called at first! I eventually bought them at AmericaSmart gift show in Atlanta. But I think you may have luck tracking them down on eBay :)
