Floral Alabaster Shoes Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

We picked up a great pair of shoes at a local clothing store and couldn't resist adding a little something extra. Feel free to edit this design to fit your shoes.

Step One: Use Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to glue an 8mm TierraCast antique silver large hole spacer bead to the center of each flower on the flower-patterned shoes. Let dry. Glue an ss16 Swarovski flatback in mint alabaster to the center of each spacer.

Step Two: Using Gem-Tac, glue a 6mm TierraCast antique silver beaded spacer with loop to each side of the top of your shoe, Attach an ss20 XILION rose flatback in mint alabaster to the center of each spacer. Let dry.

Step Three: Cut two pieces of silver-plated medium rollo chain. Use a sterling silver open jump ring to attach both pieces of chain to a loop on one of the spacers. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Repeat for the other side of the chains.

Step Four: Repeat these steps to create the second shoe.
Estimated time: Less than 1 hour (plus drying time)
