@HisNightOwl2014:  Hmm.. I know for my shoes I am using 2, 3 and 4 mm crystals… It looks like the smallest pearls on the shoes are maybe 5mm? This is just a guess, but they only look a hair bigger than my 4mm… The biggest (round) ones I would almost take a good shot at somewhere between 10 and 12mm.. As far as the oblong and tear drops, I have no clue

@HisNightOwl2014:  Another shot in the dark here, but.. If you compare the tear drop ones, to the largest round ones, I would bet they are between 15 and 18mm I bet the oblong are only slightly larger at 20MM? again, shots in the dark, and I’m no expert, but that’s my guess! I mean, i wouldn’t want to match them exactly anyway.. I would stick with your size ranges (for all of them) between 5mm at the smallest and 20mm for the biggest and mix it up! Did you want to use the different shapes or do all rounds? I think all rounds would look rather neat in different sizes (but I’m kinda partial to round stones because of my current strassing project ^_^)

 

ETA: I just noticed there are crystals on the shoes.. Those are probably about 5-8mm as well

@HisNightOwl2014:  awesome! Good luck in finding the pearls… I would try ebay.. The place I got my crystals from has different sizes/shapes of pearls too, but I’m at work so I can’t get to ebay to give you a link at the moment…
