Wow. Just found this post, and seeing the progress is amazing. Those look so awesome! I really hope that you get back to working on them soon, because that is impressive.  Not sure I would have the patience for working with all those tiny crystals!

They came out great, I would love to see how they look with your dress! You mentioned your crystals were not Swarowski, is there a substantial cost savings? Do oyu feel that they are look or feel any differnet? Just wondering as I see many of the strassing projects on here use Swarowski and are super expensive. Good job on this project! If you reun out of time, I think you could just do the glitter glue on the platform without taking away from the look.

@KTWJackson:  Hey!  I noticed you did blue over black and it looks great!  Do you think the red siam colors would look ok over black, (anyone is welcome to send some advice on this)? I found a nice (read:cheap) pair of shoes, but they are black patent.  Didn’t know if I should try it, or wait for red. I can’t sharpie black.  What do you think?
