While the function of shoes have remained the same, the form continues to change, with designs reflecting the fads and styles of its era. From a more personal standpoint, it is one of the ways in which women express their own individual style.
While already made available by manufacturers in a multitude of colors, fabrics, and trademark designs, women still find the need to customize their pairs. This is either in an effort to have the perfect pair from a comfort and style perspective, or to expand their collection into styles that can be used to represent their different personal characteristics or particular occasions.
One of the most popular ways to customize shoes have been to apply rhinestones and turn what would otherwise be a modest looking pair of shoes into one that shines bright and reflects a certain level of elegance. Whether a pair of canvas sneakers of a sophisticated set of heels, the application of rhinestones in a creative pattern can drastically change its look. As a do-it-yourself project, it guarantees that the owner has a one-of-a-kind pair.
Due to its popularity, many types of rhinestones have become readily available on the market. These include Swarovski elements, Preciosa crystals, and more. Online suppliers offer a large selection to choose from, and even make recommendations as to what types and amounts would best suit a particular shoe style.
