    I saw these on Lamaras page too, I have to say they are fabulous but i'd never be able to walk in them! If they could just attach wheels to them then i'd be wheeled around :)

    She had flats in her album too and does different heel heights. :)

    I've ordered some gems and I'm going to try and make my own when they arrive so will see how that goes!

    Will do. Could be a total disaster! Quite excited about trying it though. Hope the gems arrive soon!

    Wow! They certainly look heavy - but think of the workout your legs would get from just wearing them!! :lol:

    I quite like the pink sparkly flats - you could definitely wear them with jeans,

    If you have used 3000 so far then i am going to need to order a lot more, i have ordered 3000 pearls ranging from 10mm to 1mm and 500 2mm clear gems. Just have to dig out a pair of shoes now.

    I experimented a bit with the spacing of the gems, I put them touching on the heels and apart on the shoe. :)

    I think I will need about 200 more gems to finish. If I had done the entire shoe touching I think I would need 4000.

    This was using 4mm size gems. Also I have size 5 feet, so I assume you need slightly less for a smaller shoe and more for a larger one.

    I did them multicoloured to match this handbag and hopefully this means they will go with lots of coloured outfits!

    I think I may have another try with a different colour shoe to start with I used white to match the bag for this pair and I would quite like to do some black ones with flames or something on... Just to see how it turns out... Not because it means I can have more shoes... ;)

    They look great! How long did they take to do? You are so skilled with crafty things!

    For the pair.

    I clicked buy :( now I am very poor, but will be able to make another pair or three... Maybe I should sell one of them to fund my pairs!

    They look great.
    I am a size 7, some of the pearls i have ordered are 10mm, also got from 8mm to 3mm in pearls and 2mm crystals for the heels. Found an old pair of shoes that i have had for about 6/7 years they are so comfortable but starting to show their age so they might end up being my something old. Cant wait for my pearls to arrive now should be here tomorrow
