@nyan-nyan:  I did low heel/partail sandals in pearls (mostly 6,5,4,3mm) and ordered 7,000 for a size 6 show and only used about half.

That was total for both shoes.  It went pretty fast.  I highly recommend using a gem setter –they cost about $4 for two.

Also, you can see in the pic that I did the ankle strap and it is not noticable while wearing (comfort wise).

@nyan-nyan: I took this pic at night and they were 3/4 done being strassed. I used mostly larger AB rhinsetones. They shine rainbow colors instead of the clear. I think I used about 2,000ish per shoe. They are size 9.5 flats.
