This week at the mall I saw someone with some rhinestones on the heel of her shoe. She was very fashionable and clearly up on the latest fashion… something that eludes me most of the time. I am a busy mom that struggles to put an outfit together never mind accessorize it.
Now, I am not sure if these rhinestones were part of her shoes or not but it occurred to me this was kind of sexy. A little eye candy as you walk away, if you will. So, why not add some to the only pair of black heels that I own. You know for that rare occasion that my husband actually takes me out on a date and I actually put on that little black dress that hangs neglected in my closet.
These were ridiculously easy to make.
I took some stretchy jelly cord (the kind you use for beading), strung 10 – 4mm pearls, and tied it together with a double knot. Then I just added them to my shoes.
Seriously, that was it.
I did do some experimenting and found that if the jelly cord lays flat on the inside of your heel they stay put. When I stung the pearls all the way around the heel they eventually rolled off.
I am sure that this is the kind of accessory that can be made a thousand different ways. So, I challenge you to do just that. Make some yourself and share them with us. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Please be kind and don’t forget to link back to this post.
I will be linking this project to some of these great linky parties.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!
