Here’s a flexible tutorial for how to make a very blinged out pavé style pendant. Amy comments that she uses acrylic and air dry clay for her first try because you can’t bake the less expensive acrylic rhinestones… but I’ve baked acrylic rhinestones so maybe give it a try or use the less high temperature clay like Fimo.
Or make little divots with the rhinestones in your clay, pop the rhinestones out, bake, then glue them in their divots after. Another option would be to use an epoxy clay.
