I am a college student and preparing a collection for our school fashion show. I am working on a prom dress line and want to do some intricate and delicate beading that includes seed beads but want to do an elaborate bigger beaded display on on of the hips. I am wondering where to get flat clothing beads that have two holes to secure the bead down, preferably rhinestone looking and I don't really have a price limit because I am definitely in it to win it!

Here is a picture of a similar idea with the larger rhinestone beading.

I just googled "sew-on rhinestones" and came up with this site: https://www.rhinestoneshop.com/sew-on-rhinestones/  I'm sure you can find more listings that way too.

I worked in a bridal shop for a while, those trims come 'ready made' and generally aren't sewn on (not that type anyway).

You should be able to find beaded fabric and trims in a really good, upmarket fabric store or on-line, but usually it's better to go and visually see it to make sure you're getting what you want.

Also you can cheaply buy Swarovski crystals, there are many suppliers around and they have a lovely sparkle. If you aren't using too many it shouldn't cost too much.
