Ever try to pick up rhinestones with your fingers or tweezers? To say it's difficult would be an understatement! These rhinestone pencils make it easy! Sharpen them with a regular pencil sharpener (or even an eyeliner sharpener) to a point, and softly tap them onto the surface of the rhinestone and they will stick! Then you can apply them to a pre-glued surface and they will stick to the glue. They are very handy and last a long time, only needing to be re-sharpened if the point breaks, which it rarely does.
