These shoe jewels from Heart + Sole are just the thing to dress up any of the gorgeous wedding shoes you can find in our newly expanded gallery. Run by a husband and wife team, the company arose out of co-founder Nicole McCabe's desire to add a unique touch to her own wedding. Looking for a twist on the traditional "something blue", she came up with the idea of adding jeweled initials to the sole of her shoes. After being inundated with requests from family and friends who wanted their own shoe jewels, Nicole decided to start her own company.
Made of Swarovski crystals, the shoe jewels come in seven different designs (including the lovely "I Heart U" style pictured here) that can be easily applied to the sole of your shoe. Even better, Nicole and her husband create each design by hand with your wedding date, intitials and colors of your choosing. Still don't see one you like? Just ask, and they'll create a unique design just for you. Check out all the designs here, and then e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to order your own shoe jewels. —Kathryn Papanek
