I made these to wear to christmas parties, I got snowed in so it didn't really happen (the shoes not the parties, big boots were the order of the day!). Stones are acryllic stick on gems, used a mixture of a hot glue gun and UHU to get them on. For the record UHU works so much better.



What I started with: (boring shoes I bought to wear to work but never do)




Part way through, the ruby is from a pair of broken earring studs.



glue+patience =



I've finally had a chance to wear them outside the house, danced all night and not even a single gem came off. Seeing these pics though I ought to polish those scuffs off the toes!

Thanks for looking and happy shoe-making to you all.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

going to most distant star,
looking for the higher tenor,
journey leading far and far.
