    EBAY VENDORS
    London Mykal’s
    generic eBay search for pointed back rhinestones
    A search for Swarvoski with any of the following terms should also yield results – pointed back, chaton, 1100, 1012, 1028, or 1088.

    WARNING! When mailing gems and eyes, do not mail them loose in a plain envelope. They will be squeezed out by the Post Office during transit! Susie recommends using a little padded envelope… or wrap them in bubble warp or foam first if you use a plain envelope.e warp or foam first if you use a plain envelope.

    I always find myself wishing we had a ‘sticky’ for this info! I just ordered some more muse stones yesterday, I get these in the SS09 size.

    Good idea :).

    I was wondering if anyone could please let me know which stores they shop at online? If eBay, could you please let me know the stores or sellers that sell tiny gemstones? They’re not easy to find sometimes, lol. Thank you so much! πŸ™‚

    I got some tiny, tiny stones from dreamtimecreastions.com–I mean I went blind putting them in the swap piece I painted for Leigha! They come in packages of 144 or so and not all colors come in all sizes. I went for the pointed back Swarovski elements. Leigha did make the comment that they really sparkled. So that is another place you can check out.

    I know that I have posted a couple threads on this topic, and I have seen many more people wonder the same thing. A sticky for this info would be very handy!!

    I usually buy from riogrande.com but fire mountain is a good source as well. (Rio has cheap diamonds)

    Great idea for a thread. It’s painful trying to search out the answers with all the PYOs sizes scattered in different threads >.< One thread that lists all the sizes for all the PYOs would be much appreciated!

    Also, if anyone has eye sizes for all the PYOs as well, I’d love to know them! So I can figure out if I can trade eyes for another color with someone who has a pair that was for a different sculpt. I don’t have all the PYOs with eyes separate to measure them myself. >.<

    If everyone can find their old threads, post the links or info here. If we get enough info, I can update the first post so all the info and such are at the beginning.

    If anyone knows the “mm” sizes for the stones (and the eye sizes), I’d like that info too. πŸ™‚

    I haven’t used gems on the unicorn personally, but in this thread, two members use 1mm and 2mm in the unicorns tail and mane depending on the hole size, while another member said she used 3mm gems in certain places but said “some of the spots are iffy”. Maybe others can confirm whether a 3mm will work or not.

    Also, here’s a link to a PP-SS-mm conversion chart I found on the interwebs for anyone who needs to buy in measurements other than mm.

    I just found that thread, too! πŸ˜† I will also add the keeper to the list.

    oooh, and I like that chart!! Sweet!

    Thanks! πŸ™‚

    He he.

    About the eyes, in this thread Melody stated the PYO Keeper’s eye is 11mm and a forum member said the PYO young (small) dragon’s eye was 8 mm. I might be able to measure a PYO gryphon’s eye soon.

    OK, the info is being compiled!

    And does the wolf have a spot for a gem?? I don’t have a wolf PYO so I have no idea. I can’t remember ever seeing one with a gem… :scratch:

    If there’s anything else that would be helpful, just add it to the thread! πŸ™‚

    No real gem spot on a PYO wolf.
