Imaginisce recently announced their newest product, the i-rock, a handheld heat-setting tool that will affix studs, crystals, rhinestones, pearls and mirrors to paper, fabric and more. I was lucky enough to test drive this innovative tool, and found it to be quite useful.
The tool itself comes on its own (gems are separate), and you will need 3 AA batteries. Cordless! Very convenient.
