Need to get some more Barbie shoes!! Got 2 pairs free at a garage sale 2 weeks ago.  Anyone seen ballet shoes at all?

A couple months ago I made a pair of earrings out of barbie shoes with jump rings and hooked about 5 shoes together with jump rings.  The earrings are chandelier-esque (sp?)because of how many pairs i hooked together. 
Can you buy the barbie shoes separately from the barbie?

I decided to make my own arm earings after seeing the pair here only I added blood and built mine differently using wire, pliers, candle, and stud earings.

If Anyone wants I can post a tutorial, although they're really easy once you understand how I made them Cheesy

That's so awesome! Please do post a tutorial.

I'll try my best at explaining.
1.I took my barbie and cut her arms off at the elbow with a utility knife.
2.I used red paint and painted the arms so they looked like the blood was running down them.
3.I used pliers and cut a piece of wire about 1and a half inches long. Then I made a tiny loop with the pliers on one end of the wire.
4.I then decided where I wanted my wire to go through. In these earings I made the wire come from the top of the arm on an angle so the wire came out about 1 centimeter (sorry about switching to metric Smiley Bad habit) down from the top on the back of the arms.
4.Then I held the wire, using the pliers, over the candle to heat it up. I pulled the wire out of the flame and very quickly pushed it from the top of the arm to where I wanted it to come out. You'll have to do this quite a few times before you get it all the way through.
5.When I got the wire through I twisted the end into something resembling a knot and bent the wire at the top so it was bent straight up.
6. Then to wear the arms I took a stud and slipped the part the goes in your ear(I think it's called the post) through the loop in the wire then the post of the stud in my ear. this is really usefull because you can change the style of the stud anytime you want.

I don't know if that made any sense but it's alot easier than it sounds. If you don't understand something feel free the PM me.
