2  Glitter Encrusted Penny Loafers in Shoes: Completed Projects by griffinthecat on: October 02, 2011 12:29:59 PM
Here is my latest shoe concoction!  It's a Miu Miu inspired glitter covered penny loafer.  The base shoe is from Bongo, and the glitter color mix is a custom color.  It's a really subtle look because I mixed the glitter into the glue instead of sprinkling it on top.

3  Wonder Woman Pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by griffinthecat on: September 18, 2011 06:40:59 PM
I made this pillow several years ago for a friend.  She was decorating in a super-hero theme and was upset she couldn't find any Wonder Woman gear.  So I found this awesome star material at JoAnns (it glitters!) and appliqued the logo on.  It's pretty simple, but I love how it turned out!

4  Swarovski Blue Heels in Shoes: Completed Projects by griffinthecat on: September 18, 2011 06:21:12 PM
The base used for this shoe is from Romantic Soles and is called Aishah.  The shoes started their life has a satin sling back shoe with an organza bow. I thought the bows would distract too much from the sparkles of the rhinestone, and just make the shoe a bit too fussy.  So the bows were removed.  They were then coated in rhinestones, using approximately 6000 rhinestones in five different sizes.  The colors used are Aquamarine and Capri, and are the 2028 Rose Xillion stones from Swarovski.  These shoes took about 40 hours.

5  Swarovski Crystal Platform Pumps in Shoes: Completed Projects by griffinthecat on: September 18, 2011 06:18:16 PM
I love this shoe.  I really do.  The platform and the heel are amazing.  I love the Mary Jane strap because it adds just a bit of extra oomph to the shoe.  It's the Rebecka from Brigitte Bailey by Pour La Victoire.  The pair of shoes used the nude patent as the base.. Nearly 8000 Silk Swarovski Rhinestones were used to create these gorgeous shoes and it took about 40 hours.
