Peacock Shoes Finished!

Peacock

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!

Fern Green and Peridot

These are the shoes I made for a company holiday party.  I randomly placed Fern Green and Peridot crystals on the shoe to create a greater sense of depth.  Plus I didn’t want the shoes to look like cheap glittered shoes.  Using two colors really sets these shoes apart.

You can see the black of the shoe coming through.  I elected to not paint these shoes because of the definition it creates between the two colors.
