Replacing lost eye gems on a G2?
« on: January 18, 2021, 04:43:59 AM »
I got a G2 in the mail, and she is missing the gems in her eyes! There's a hole where they should be.

Is there a proper match for them?

Yes! Look on ebay for loose Swarovski Chatons

these are pointed-back glass rhinestones. The size you will need will be the small size, this can be described as "ss" (stone size) or "pp" (pearl plate)

I forget the actual size that you need (Don't have a pony to hand to check) -

I believe SS12 or PP18 is the size you need.
  (Thanks, TRTL!)


please measure the diameter of the space and then look at the chart below:

Do not use superglue, the chemicals dull the foil-backing and leave you with a foggy jewel! Epoxy resin is safe, in my experience.  :biggrin:

Thanks for the info! I don't have a ruler that measures small stuff though...
