Ummm…yeah….I think I found the shoes I want to DIY for my reception. And I think they’ll have to be something else besides CL’s. CL’s don’t fit in my budget on any day.

Are you doing the entire shoe or just the heel?

I think Im going to go for the entire shoe as the heel is wood.

These are gorgeous. I’ve been looking long and hard at that TPF thread, thinking I want to do it and wondering will I have the patience to get all the way through both shoes! TheRen – could you let us know how long it takes you to do them?! Good luck!!

Oooohhh….I can’t wait to see how it turns out for you. I hope you got enough crystals. On TPF, the girls were talking about 3k – 4k for covering the entire shoe.

I’m looking for a shoe to do myself, but I think I want a purple d’orsay.

@Dee of course.. Im waiting on my hotfix tool and then its on!!! Im sure im going to have to order more crystals but I wanted to start and see how much I would need. As you can see by the pic I got 6ss, 10ss, 16ss, and 20ss in the Tanzanite AB. All together I only have about 504 crystals and I read most girls used close to about 3000. I think the 6ss might be a bit small but I am going to lay everything out before I glue them on. Ill take a pic of that tonight to get some feedback.

ok here is just a few crystal laid out on the toe of the shoe and my heart almost skipped a beat.. omg ladies this is going to be beautiful (note that one of the 10ss stones is a regular tanzanite stone and not the ab.. I guess it got put in with mine by accident). Even though Im a red shoe bride these might end up being my reception shoes!!
