A Brilliant Night Shoes Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Some nights require an added touch of elegance and drama. For those occasions, look no further than these stunning shoes. We chose to completely cover our heels in Swarovski flatbacks. The size, color and amount of crystals you use is up to you.

Step One: Use E-6000 glue to attach two Swarovski 14x10mm flatbacks in cosmic crystal and one Swarovski 20x14mm flatback in cosmic crystal to the straps running across the foot.

Step Two: On the heel of your shoe, use the Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to attach the larger crystals in the places of your choosing. We chose to use Swarovski 14x10mm flatbacks in cosmic crystal, Swarovski 12x4mm baguettes in cosmic crystal, and Swarovski ss34 flatbacks in crystal. Fill in the remaining spaces with smaller crystals, such as Swarovski crystal flatbacks in ss30, ss20, ss16, ss12, SS9 and SS7. The rhinestone sizes and approximate quantities we used for our pair of shoes are listed below. Use this as a guide only; the size of the heels you are embellishing will determine how many or how few you need.
