Materials List

  • A pair of plain shoes
  • Old costume jewelry like brooches and earrings
  • Gem adhesive like Gem Tac
  • Jewelry pliers


  1. First make sure the top of your shoe is clean and dry.

  2. Next pick your favorite gemmed jewelry breaking off any backings, and clasps. Use the jewelry pliers and toss out any extra metal pieces. 

  3. Place jewels on the toe of the shoe to create a design you like. Use a statement piece in the middle of the toe and build around that. If you have a pair of earrings you can put one on each shoe for symmetry.

  4. Keep gluing until all the gems are all secure....and be sure to let the glue cure for 24 hours. Don’t worry: it’ll dry clear!
