V24281 - GeMagic Stud Setting Tool with 1,020 Studs/ Crystals
I like this product
I am amazed at the other peoples opinions by this. I have 2 of these and each of my daughters have them. We have fun with this. I have used it to decorate the many cloth books I hand sew my grandchildren.. I haven't experienced the problems the others mention. I always double check the clasps and tighten them any way because of the precious little hands who hold my books and read them and have tightened quite a few, but that's called crafting. These really embellish my books, along with buttons, ribbons, and embroidery pens.
Very good product
I enjoy the hours of making gifts to give away to family and friends. I also enjoy the way this product makes me use my mine and think of creative ways to make items look.
I wish I had read the reviews before I purchased this junk. The gems aren't bad but the tool is absolutely useless. The hand tool broke after setting just one gem and the auto setter is awful. It mangels the prongs. A total waste of money. Setting them by hand is easy and works great but it's very time consuming. If my 30 days hadn't been up I would have sent it back. Don't waste your money. I agree that QVC should remove it from their airings. I'll have to settle for my product review being my restitution. :(
The gems are great!
I found the gems to be great. Have put on many t-shirts. Washing was just fine, no rust. The tool is useless, go ahead and bend the prongs by hand. I am real pleased with the gems!
It works for me :)
Well, I ordered this product from the infomercial for myself and my nieces and I think it works fine, I have done a pair of jeans and it has been washed many times, no rust at all, 4 studs did come out and it's been over a year now that I did the jeans, I have not been stuck by any pronges either.
Was Afraid to Keep it
After reading all the neg reviews in here, when it came in the mail, I just turned right around and sent it back. Imagine if I used them on a a very special gift to have them rust with washing, I was not willing to take the chance on that. Wish I had read the reviews before purchasing it.
I bought 2 of these for my daughters for Christmas. They tried them on a couple of items like jeans. You cannot place the gems close enough together and the prongs will stick you on the inside of the fabric. Many cons. Both boxes are sitting in their bedrooms on a top shelf and haven't been opened in months.
Rusy Studs-Bad Purchase
My grandson and I made an apron for his mother and the studs did not stay in. Also they rust after washing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The tool itself is garbage... don't waste your money. The studs are great. Go ahead and order them. You can use them without the tool anyway and a lot easier and more accurately by hand.
Very plastic in all aspects. Studs fall out, plastic attachments fall apart, prongs sprawl in different directions. Very poor construction. Not to mention, the "crystals" are plastic and cloudy. QVC needs to take this one out of commission.
studs okay but tool useless
the studs are okay... wish I could pick a specific colour myself... will not use some ever ... the tool itself though is very cheap and hard to use.
Very disappointed! Waste of time, and money. (Not 2 mention the extra S&H cost.)
