Young people enjoy applying rhinestones to personal goods, such as notebook PCs, mobile phones, and digital cameras. However, novices often find designing rhinestone decorations difficult because they must consider such factors as rhinestone width and spacing. So, many people employ off-the-shelf design sheets or have professionals decorate their items. To solve this problem, I have developed an interactive editor for designing rhinestone decorations. Users draw free form strokes; the system then automatically places virtual rhinestones to create an image in which no rhinestones overlap. Users can create a stencil of the image and use it to place the real rhinestones on objects.
