I had recently bought a pair of what I thought were super adorable shoes. That was, until I brought them home and realized they were really plain. So there they sat until I could find suitable adornments. Who would have thought they would have been $2.99 pieces of jewelry!


I can't wait to wear these!


They were sort of cute on their own, but on my feet, looked pretty bland.


Terribly made cheap scenester jewels in a color that doesn't flatter me, but goes great with plum!

Back view. Hey bird, what's up? Hope you don't fall off.


Inside view. I really liked the key charm, but had NO idea where to put it, so I put it in a secret place?

Thanks so much for looking! Smiley

Thanks so much!

Oooh.. I covet.

Haha they were pretty easy to make; I just had to let go of anything that made sense

Unfreakin'-believable.... Wisted and rocked! You're an inspiration!

Awwwww thanks :3

Awesome! Could be requested by Gaga herself.

Not sure if they're even outrageous enough for Gaga!

I love this make over.

Thanks! It only took about 20-30 minutes. Smiley

I'm a pretty conservative gal, but these are too awesome not rock! I love em, and will definitely be scouring the 10 for $10 sales at the local hipster stores for jewelry.

Out of curiousity, what did you use to attach everything?

I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.

Thanks! I was at Rue 21 and happened across an AWESOME sale. Anything redlined was like $1, $2, or $3 and then I 'splurged' on earrings at forever 21.

I used hot glue to attach everything, which makes me really nervous because if I hadn't been so darn excited to make them, I probably could have made a better adhesive decision. When I wear them I'll just have to be extra cautious. The next pair I make I'll probably try something stronger, yet fast drying. Any suggestions??
