This pair of jeweled heels is from past seasons of Miu Miu. We could also get the inspiration of refresh our old heels with some leftovers of rhinestone beads.

30-40 small (3-6 mm) round rhinestones
small dish or container
flat nose pliers (optional)
If you don’t have leftovers of rhinestone, you can use flat back rhinestone beads. Search some online wholesale beads suppliers for more shapes/colors varieties.
A tip: the smaller round stones will require the tiniest bit of glue. Dip a toothpick into the glue, dab it onto the backside of the stone and apply to the shoe.

I love using cabochon settings to create vintage style handmade jewelry. They have polished surface, classic shapes and flat base in the center. As a primary jewelry maker like me, sometimes being lazy to go for complicate jewelry patterns, I will try with this ingenious but simple jewelry finding. Anyone can add beads, gems, or pearl with a glue in the center of it. However, you still need to recheck the proper size of cabochon settings before gluing the beads in. Or it will fall off while you are wearing.
