The base used for this shoe is from Romantic Soles and is called “Aishah.”  The shoes started their life has a satin sling back shoe with an organza bow. I thought the bows would distract too much from the sparkles of the rhinestone, and just make the shoe a bit too fussy.  So the bows were removed.  They were then coated in rhinestones, using approximately 6000 rhinestones in five different sizes.  The colors used are Aquamarine and Capri, and are the 2028 Rose Xillion stones from Swarovski.  These shoes took about 40 hours.

I really like that you used different sized stones, i think it wouldve looked alot different if you hadnt. It almost makes me want to attempt wearing heals lol.

Thank you!  I agree, the various different sizes helped the rhinestones be a lot closer together and give a more uniform sparkle :-)
