My advice(I’ve never done shoes but started doing cell phones, mirrored compact covers, etc. as soon as Sarah Jessica Parker first pulled her pink rhinestone cell phone out on tv)

  • Buy Swarovski crystals online.  – the sparkle is so much more obvious and they are cheaper in bulk.  I saw some girl that did her shoes with plastic rhinestones bought from Michael’s!!  Ick.
  • Use hotfix or E6000 and a toothpick.
  • Plan it out first. Sketch a drawing
  • Take your time
  • Break it up into manageable time periods.  3 hours gluing and anyone can start to get sloppy
  • Take pictures to show us your progress!

Good luck!
