Chain Heels

You will need:
1.a pair of open-toed booties or a pump, chains, piler, gripster knife, studs and jump rings.
2. Make two small slits with a knife or blade around the center back section of the shoes, spaced equally apart to fit the width of your stud’s prongs.
3. Hang a jump ring on each of the studs.
4. then push the studs into the slits you made.
5. Repeat this twice, once each side of the heel.
6. Take apart your draped chain necklace.
7. Measure chains onto shoes and cut at the correct width to hang it from one jump ring to the other.
8. Once cut, attach jump rings to each end.
9. Attach jump rings and close with pliers.
10. Repeat with other end.
11. Cut the fringe just short of the ground with wire cutters.
12. Remove some fringe and add heavier-weight chains for more variety and added drama.
13. Add another stud a few more inches down the sides for another detail (note how fierce this looks from the back!).
14. Drape a heavier-weight chain from the jump rings on either side of the heel’s stud, for a polished effect on the back are OPTIONAL FINISHING TOUCHES.
