Step 1

Choose an item to add a crystal rhinestone to. In this case, we are using a charm.

Step 2

Add a bead of adhesive to the charm.

Step 3

Pick up a crystal rhinestone. Use a Jewel Setter to easily pick up rhinestones.

Step 4

Place the crystal rhinestone on top of the bead of glue.

Step 5

To remove the crystal rhinestone from the Jewel Setter, use the pointed tip of another Jewel Setter, your finger nail or a pair of Tweezers. Gently press the crystal rhinestone into place.

Step 6

Let the glue set for several minutes. Congratulations! Your charm is now crystallized.
