Peacock Shoes Finished!

These shoes were very challenging to make but very rewarding!  I am very pleased with the outcome.  The Vitrail Medium crystal is so beautiful!  I see it used mostly with baby blue or silver shoes (boring!) but they are beautiful when applied to a turquoise or even bright pink shoe.

PeacockTo give credit where credit is due, I did not make these beautiful peacock feather shoe clips.  I did add the crystal detailing to them, but Lucyohlucy did an amazing job making a customized pair of shoe clips for me.

Without the shoe clips these shoes are still incredibly stunning!

Inspiration

I stumbled across these shoes the other day while searching for awesome shoes to bling.  Although I’m not a huge fan of the cage or gladiator sandals, I can see these being a beautiful and very awesome pair of shoes.  They are called Momento by Chinese Laundry.

At first glance I thought that doing these in a Jet or Jet Hematite crystal would be ideal, but also predictable.  I think these should would be fabulous with deep blue accents, specifically Cobalt.

I wouldn’t cover the whole shoe, I would cover the platform, the heel and do an accent outline on the straps.  That way the shoe can be more of a statement than a predictable black on black.
