Our Story

Bridging the gap between ideas and creating. 
Offering an extensive line of Swarovski crystals, sew on crystals, and the highest quality craft jewelry supplies. 


Barton DIY offers a huge line of Swarovski crystals, empty cup chain jewelry components, sew on crystals, craft jewelry tools, supplies, and vintage treasures you can’t find anywhere else. Our online shop includes tutorials, inspiration and behind the scenes history of the jewelry industry.


The jewelry industry in Rhode Island has dramatically shifted over the past few decades. What was once a thriving manufacturing center has been replaced by an influx of low-quality imports. We are continuously inspired by companies that choose to manufacture in the USA and try to support them whenever possible! The small businesses we partner with offer invaluable knowledge, support, and friendship as we continue to grow.
We are dedicated to continuing to work with local businesses.


Both born and raised on Aquidneck Island in RI, our family-run business is a huge part of who we are. Barton (Amanda’s middle name!) grew from a love of vintage, a passion for manufacturing in the United States, a little good luck and a lot of hard work. After buying and selling closeout lots from jewelry manufacturers up and down the East coast, we decided to start setting some of the vintage rhinestones in sew on settings and retailing them. We loved working with customers directly so much that we started a website, expanded the lines of Swarovski crystal we carried, and Barton DIY was born (formerly Sew On Crystals). Working with customers is still our favorite part of the business and we encourage you to reach out with questions big or small!
