Adding personal touches to your shoes and bags


Customised Shoes Design Service

Let's get those shoes designed for you. They'll look individual and be the talk of your night out!

  Knowing the difference between rhinestones, preciosa and Swarovski is something I talk customers through.  My prices range between £25 - £750, as it all depends on whether you want a few sparkles or a fully covered pair of shoes, plus how big a design and the grade of crystal.  I think it's important that I offer flexible pricing to suit everyone's budget. No work is undertaken until we have had a good chat and gone through all the options together.

I have customised party shoes, wedding shoes, converse for brides and bridesmaids and re-vamped beloved wedding shoes. Grooms-to-be have posted me shoes as a lovely surprise gift for their brides too!  Extra special touches have been added to shoes of wedding guests, catwalk models, boys shoes and birthday girls, plus winter wedding wellies, designer label shoes and handbags.  A ski helmet, a tuxedo jacket and a prom dress have also had the sparkle added.  Check out my Instagram to see more.

It's not just about the bling, I am passionate about designing

Creating a design for someone, exceeding their expectations and seeing them smile is what makes me happy. What would you love to have? Send me a message or call me, I would like to know!

Why work with me?

Well, firstly, I don't just stick stones on shoes!

You will get a 1-2-1 design service from me, all starting off with a relaxed shoe chat. I am proud to say I won four design competitions on my shoe design degree, the more well-known awards being from Church's Footwear and Clarks. I went to Florence, Italy as a result of my achievements at university and worked in the industry as a shoe designer. It was 2008 when I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Shoes & Accessories Design, and by 2010 I was customising shoes as a hobby! It's just having that freedom to create from scratch and to your own rules, its exciting and therapeutic. The first pair I did, was just by cutting up a gold metal necklace I really liked in H&M, and sewing the chain and the metal flowers onto a satin pair of black shoes. The I added a white silver zip down the heels of another white pair of shoes and adding silver metal studs. I started learning how to make satin flowers and frothy bows for shoes (Lady Gaga was big on the scene) … and then came the feathers... aaaah!

Your designed shoes will not be a repeat of shoes already on the high street. They will be unique to you, and reflecting who you are. And,the crystals will be the grade you have asked me to use, and not a cheaper version. I use the right methods which keep your crystals onto your shoes for a very long time and your crystals will not be damaged by the weather.

I live in a quaint village called Ramsbottom in the Pennine Hills valley of Greater Manchester, UK. No matter where you might be in the world we can chat via the internet. Or, if you're local then let's meet for coffee and a shoe chat.

Words from a happy bride

Nicky is the most helpful, kind, inventive shoe designer I've ever come across. She came up with a stunning and unique design for my wedding shoes which complimented my dress and flowers and wowed all our wedding guests. 

I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful design for my wedding shoes! Nicky cleverly incorporated all the creative elements from the wedding into their design and added a sprinkling of sparkle. I love my shoes so much that now my wedding day has passed, I've put the shoes in a glass cabinet in my lounge so I can see them every day!  


Our services

Adding a personal touch to your wedding shoes, trainers, fashion shoes and designer footwear.

I use a mixture of beautiful trimmings to add a unique touch to all styles of shoes to suit your unique personality.

My gallery includes designs created with Swarovski crystals, rhinestones, pearls, feathers, butterflies and doves and more. 

No request is too big or small. 


Would you like to add a special date or initials to your trainers, converse, nike, adidas or other similar style of shoes?

Adding crystals in your colour choice to the three strips on Adidas, or Nike ticks makes such a difference to their look.

Perhaps you are groom-to-be and would like to surprise your bride with a personalised pair of flat shoes so she can dance the night away! 

I have added Swarovski, rhinestones, pearls and metal spikes to casual footwear.

No request is too big or small.

It was once suggested to me at a wedding fair that I should offer shoe decorating workshops as an alternative hen party idea. As a result I have been teaching weekend shoe workshops to hen party and birthday groups all over the UK, met so many lovely people, and had the amazing opportunity to teach workshops in Brighton, Bournemouth, Bristol, Birmingham (lots of places with B), Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Reading and Stirling and lots of other lovely places in between!

To spread the word, I did travel the UK extensively! But now, the mobile service is only available in my home county of Lancashire and all of Greater Manchester.  Please tell me a preferred location and I will source a perfect workshop venue and catch you there!

Free place for party girl + a surprise gift + zillions of crystals and pearls to enjoy + welcome soft drinks + nibbles + party room

What our customers are saying

Nicky turned my 'Plain-Jane' wedding shoes into Cinderella Shoes! They are AMAZING! They sparkle and are totally unique. I can't wait for my wedding day just to wear the shoes, nothing else matters now! Best of all Nicky was brilliant - giving advice on all sorts. An easy and trustworthy service I can highly recommend.
