1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Porcelain Butterfly pendants in four colours on: August 10, 2011 10:24:37 AM
Hello you crafty people! Well, well well its been a long time since I've posted aaanything but I haven't been resting on my laurels. I've completed my degree (and did very well!) in 3D Design: Ceramics and have made some crazy ceramic instalation (pics coming soon)

But also last week I made these porcelain butterfly pendants in three sizes










The jewelry depicts (sometimes abstracted) butterflies and is English in design, making light reference to traditional Wedgewood ceramics.
what do you think?

2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Keds "matchstick" canvas skimmer made good! on: August 10, 2010 03:55:13 AM
I am extremely fussy with shoes. I loved my "For Pete Sake" wedges by BC footwear, and wore them to death. They were great because they were a mid wedge, low vamped, canvas skimmer. What more could you want in a summer shoe? This sort of shoe is near impossible to get in the U.K

..and BC don't make the shoe anymore, which means I can't get hold of it from America now anyway... but I am always on the prowl for a similar shoe.


When I saw the matchstick wedge by Keds for a tenner, I thought "nearly, but not quite" and was certain I could improve them to create my dream shoe.

If you want to make good your canvas wedges, heres how to do it. Take off the bow off, but retain this for later






Unpick the binding from the front edge of the shoe



Redraw the length of the vamp and carefully cut. Hoorah for toe cleavage!



Cut the binding on the edge which will be the outside of the shoe when you're wearing it.

re attatch binding carefully so it looks like it "never even happened" I sewed this back on by hand for a super neat finish.



here you can see ugly high vamp Vs. nice new shapely vamp. Look how much smaller my feet look!

Reattach bows to hide the gap you have where the binding doesn't meet.


 And Voila! Ugly high vamp cheapo pumps to gorgeus girly kicks instantly!



I just wish they weren't white...
