    Some days it's just hard to be me - I was waiting for a picture of high heels, with beads. LOL
    But yours are very pretty.

    Me too!

    So what are these used for? They look way too sharp to be used for turning corners right side out (for that I usually use a chopstick)

    What a coincidence, I made a couple today too. Mine are not nearly as pretty as yours because I reused beads I had. I am going to do some more after purchasing some prettier beads at Walmart. I am going to bring the metal skewer with me to check the hole size. Did you use Arlene's bead glue? I used Crazy glue which I had in the house. Your stilettos are going to make great gifts!

    Thanks. No, I did not use Arlene's glue. I used super glue instead.

    I was all worked up about shoes - I never thought of these - but these are nice too. Also, these are the only stilleto's I could use anyway (can't wear the shoes).

    Excuse me for asking a dumb question--what do you use these for? By the way I, too, was thinking shoes, they are pretty.

    Don't you use these to hold open the seams as you sew? I have one made out of bamboo that I use.
