Step 1: Shoe Transformation

I was recently at Melrose and bought 2 pairs of shoes off the clearance shelves at $9 each. I didn't like the ruffly-satin like decoration down the front so I removed it all.
Unfortunately, what looked to be just sewn on decoration, turned out to be also glued down.
So, I was left with some damage to the front strap.
Not to be undeterred, I set forth to search for a pair of earrings or jewelry that I could use to decorate the shoes.
I had narrowed it down to a 2 pairs of earrings and 2 bracelets.
The Heart earrings & Black rhinestone bracelets i purchase from Melrose and the Rhinestone mesh earrings I purchased for $6.50 from the Charlotte Russo Outlet store.
Necessary items to finish project: Clear thread which I purchased from Hobby Lobby and a needle, preferably a curved upholstery needle, thimble which I like to use a leather one. Thimbles like this are available at most craft stores and places like walmart.
