I had a close friend do this with rhinestones not pearls but similar concept! Beware it will take you a LONG time to complete and will be extremely tedious, my friend almost went mad lol 🙂 Also she she had to try a few different glues until she found one strong enough to hold them all on during normal walking around, so go as strong as you can with the glue from the beginning! And be aware that nomatter how well you stick them on they will never remain perfect, losing a couple is inevitable. But overall the friends shoes turned out stunning,  good luck and be patient! 🙂

I just love these. Using pearls gave entirely thr new look to the shoes. I have worked with rhinestones alone but now I wish to use the pearls too. Great work..!! 🙂

E-6000 is the best glue I’ve found.  But I’ve not done an entire shoe, let alone two.

VintageGinger:  Very nice!! The pearls look great! Some of them look so tiny, I can’t imagine how gluing them on has been. How long has it taken you so far? I glittered my shoes and added a ribbon to tie around my ankles and thought that was quite a bit of effort, haha.
