Hey there! I bring to the table a new shoe, inspired by the blossoming of spring. Actually that isn't 100% true. My dad was clearing sticks in his yard and I thought: "I HAVE GOT TO USE STICKS IN A DESIGN." And so these were born.

All sticks, stones and moss are real and from the earth. The flowers are silk. Smiley

[I also entered these in the current craftster challenge so if the double post isn't cool, just let me know and I apologize for it]


You can imagine what everyone thought of me picking up sticks, examining them with satisfaction, then stuffing them in my purse =P





Thanks for looking, everyone! Cheesy

Beautiful! I wish I wasn't so clumsy, I'd end up tearing something so beautiful if I wore it for any amount of time.

This rocks!

(I make stuff using twigs too, every time our hedges and trees are trimmed. Don't you just love all those free crafting materials lying around, that nobody else seems to notice?)

Thanks guys!

I haven't actually worn them yet. Or even put them on. The last time I wore these shoes (pre-upcycle) I twisted my ankle pretty bad because the wedge is so high and I'm so small. =P I think I made them with the intention of someone using them in a photo shoot, though I don't know who because I'm no photographer.

I am always open to personal swaps...I'm always on the lookout for new bags, shawls, punk/steampunk accessories, Altoids tins, etc. As a professional illustrator/fine artist, I can offer something crafty, or something more artsy. Let's talk!
