Rhinestone Lucite Bag DIY

3

We’ve been eyeing the Lucite bags on the runway in Valentino’s and Marc Jacobs’s 2013 collection and have been wanting to try our hand at a DIY influenced by this trend. We gave our bag a mini face-lift and couldn’t be happier with the results. We spiced up our pink lucite bag with swarovski flatback rhinestones and couldn’t wait to show off this easy and affordable DIY.

Place your Swarovski Flatback Rhinestones- Crystal AB SS48 face down in the Brisk-Set Rhinestone Setter. The pointed side of the stone will be faced down revealing the silver back.

Hold your bag in a way that allows you to put the Brisk-Set Rhinestone Setter inside. Place a SS48 Tiffany Setting with the prongs facing down over your plastic bag. Make sure the SS48 Tiffany Setting matches the hole in the Brisk-Set Rhinestone Setter .

For harder to reach areas you may want to manually place each of the crystals into place. The first thing you’ll want to do is push your Tiffany Settings through the bag from the interior side.

Once the settings are locked into place, place your crystal in the backing. It may help to angle your bag in a way that allows the stone to comfortably sit into place.
