- Wedding: August 2012
I have asked to be a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding next May, and she has asked us to wear nude coloured shoes. That being said, I want to strass the cr@p out of mine (which is totally fine with her… she has even talked about me strassing her shoes for her, as well), but am having the hardest time finding a Canadian retailer for Swarovski flatbacks.
The Rhinestone Guy seems to have the cheapest pricing of anyone (including eBay, where I’ve bought small packs of resin stones and Swarovskis to do a colour/bling comparison) that I’ve come across, but he’s based in Florida… meaning the duty charges would end up costing me double what I’d already be paying, which is horrendous. Now, I’m not attached to Swarovski crystals, and could deal with Precosia’s VIVA cut, but even those are hard to find (and I’m not sure the colour would be right before purchasing–I’m looking for Swarovski’s ‘Silk’ colour, or something nude-toned)…
Is anyone here a rhinstone/strass expert? Who do you order from (and how are the shipping charges)?
