I’ve seen pearl heels, partially strassed flats and lots of gems/crystals but no all pearl flats so here they are.
2mm, 3mm, 4mm and 5mm flat back pearls:
outline bottom in 2mm pearls:
random add 5mm pearls:
cover back center seam and start randoming filling in shoe (tossed different sizes into a bowl)
I worked in a very small area (dime-sized) with enough glue to be able to slide pearls into place. I also trimmed the top with 3mm pearls:
I worked on the a few hours a day and one shoe took 5 days. Pretty good with a teething 4 month old:

Thanks bees! I wanted my mom to make my dress but got a pronovias gown for what fabric would cost so I did my shoes.

@MrsKady: I’m doing pearl and rhinestone jewelry and your job makes me want to try a combo of the two, but I would end up glueing myself to … myself!!
