Wow, what a difference the 2 make!! I honestly didn’t think using the different sizes would have such an effect, but I really see why you didn’t like the first attempt. At least they were easy enough to redo!!

They look great so far, can’t wait to see the finished project!

wow! was it hard to take the crystal off??  I had used an old pair of shoes to practice on first, and then realized I bought crystals too big and needed smaller ones, so I bought more crystals (which I had to wait 2 weeks, as they come from China!)  and then I finally started working on the real shoes.  I love the cobalt blue!!

@couawilou: YES! do the strap…. maybe you could even do it in a different color? like a silver or a second wedding color???

I like it as it is ๐Ÿ™‚ do you have to put a setting glue or protective layer over it all?

@couawilou: since the rest of the shoe is covered I would do the strap as well!! I love the idea of incorporating a different color! Looking great so far!!
