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.
To 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!
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.
