DIY tack blingerizing help?

Does anyone have any idea about rim setting? I want to buy the swarovski crystals, put them into rim settings, and then onto headstalls. I have been looking online, but don't want to spend $ on the wrong tools. So I'd looove some advice, please? I know I need a few tools, but what? And the best prices and quality for my meager funds.

I think it would be cheaper to get crystal rivets. That's what I do anyways...

And the rivets are long enough to go through thick leather?

I thought the rivets would be more expensive then the rim settings. My biggest concerns are: start up cost, cost and amount of required tools, finding a good supplier that ships to Canada inexpensively, and ease of use.

Any more thoughts, anyone?

When I bling my tack I don't use a rim.. I use conchos or I just them on with E 6000 glue.. I did my husbands halter and just glued on. Also did a cpl head stalls and just glued on that glue you can put in washing machine and 95% of stones won't fall off. 1more thing lol get flat back ones if you wanna glue them on. O I also just use a pencil erase to put them on.. Good luck real easy when you figure it out :)

I tried the E6000 glue and could pick them off easily, even after cleaning and then lightly sanding the leather, not moving it for 2 days, pressing it for 2 other days, using more glue, I tried everything! So I won't be using the glue anymore, I want my tack to be horse-proof and the glue just doesn't cut it.

The rivets go though most leather. I haven't had a problem yet, & I've done bronc halters, headstalls & breastcollars with no problem. & the best part is that I've never had anything come out. As horseproof as it gets. :)

Take a glue stick, paint, glitter glue, and smudge it all over. Then before the glue dries, drag it through a craft store. Viola!
