Crystal and rhinestone embellished heels have become very popular over the past few months. With designers such as Christian Louboutin and Giuseppe Zanotti creating fabulous shoes.Christian Louboutin
I’m such a Gok fan even if I do say so myself. A few months ago he customised a clutch bag and a pair of suede shoes, they looked brilliant he made it look so simple that I decided to give it a go myself.
I checked out a few YouTube channels just to get an idea of the types of tools and or materials that would be needed.
*Shoes * E6000 Glue * Small pick this is used to place the stones in position *I also used a syringe this helped when gluing * Rhinestone beads or studs of your choice
I didn’t sketch a design as all the stones used were the same colour. I carefully glued small sections at a time waited a few seconds for the glue to become tacky and carefully placed the stones in position.
I continued until the shoe was complete. I left the glue to dry and the stones to set for 48 hours.
There are many companies who customise shoes and trainers for a fraction of what it would cost you if you were to purchase a designer pair and the shoes are just as beautiful.
