Another New Shoe Design – Hopscotch
My childhood leather sandals + Sulamith Wulfing illustrations + Japanese schoolgirl stereotype = Hopscotch.
Although, these are Sulamith Wulfing more than anything else, as the design is directly inspired by a certain illustration of hers. I’ll show you later.
These are replicas of the pair my one of a kind doll Alice in Wonderland wears, except instead of leather, they are cast in bronze, plated with 24k gold and painted with synthetic enamel.
Introducing a new feature- the strap button: a simpler, yet equally elegant solution to the teeny tiny buckle. I love it.
Hopscotch Styles From left to right: Sunday Best, First Ball and September.
Experimentation with the most basic finishes and color combination. More experiments required, of course. Especially the kind where I wear gloves and laugh like an evil scientist from time to time. While working on specimens of miniature footwear. “Chad, scalpel please, quickly!…”
Two styles Hopscotch and Marie-Antoinettes, both 24k gold-plated and enameled. Marie-Antoinette style features my signature, tiny buckle strap and decorative ornamentation on the front, back and heel, while Hopscotch is a simpler, less decorative style reminiscent of classical child’s shoes.
My place is just crawling with dolls and their tiny shoes, amongst other doll things right now. Some of my guests find it a little strange here. Can’t blame them-sometimes I find my own home quite strange. But lovely.
Any favorites? Yes, yes, I know everyone likes Macaroons.
