I initially designed this pair of shoes for my Little Red riding hood doll. They are cast in sterling silver and plated with 14k gold. It’s a combination of my favorite two styles of shoes: Kitten heels and Mary Janes, and so far, is the simplest, least ornate pair of shoes I’ve made. I was struggling with a very strong urge to decorate the heck out of them. Minimalism doesn’t come naturally to me.
The light, shallow design was inspired by a drawing of my favorite artist Sulamith Wulfing. Here is a crop.
This pair fits both, the original foot and the slightly more elongated, Rubenesque foot. Which reminds me to remind you about the upcoming (Aug 23rd) ebay auction of Rubenesque doll â„–2-Salome, who is seen here strutting in a pair of Extravagance stilettos. They also fit a Rubenesque foot.
So, do you like the new simple shoes, or are they a bit too plain?
