The update to DIY Cobalt Crystal Shoes.
To give a brief overview, I strassed my Jessica Simpson Oscar pumps with varying sizes (5ss, 7ss, 9ss, 12ss, 16ss, 20ss) of Cobalt Swarovski Crystals. I used Gemtac glue with a syringe and applied the crystals individually with a jewel setter. I also followed Miss Fox’s lead and “Pimped Out My Wedding Shoes.” I added some Martha Stewart glitter to the soles with Martha’s Decoupage and foam brushes. I used black glitter because the original soles were black and I wanted to add to the strassing, not distract from it.
Full disclosure, I finished my shoes about two weeks ago but hadn’t had any time to do a photo shoot! So, here they are!
When I cam back inside one of my kitties, Zulu, wanted to join in the photoshoot fun, so here are a few gratuitous pics!
So now that those are out of the way… is it crazy that I’m already plotting on strassing another pair with Swarovski Volcano crystals for the rehersal and/or reception? 😉

Thanks ladies! I’m so proud of myself for finally finishing them! I refuse to wear them until the wedding. Well, except for walking around the carpeted apartment so I can pose in front of the mirror with them on, haha.
