If the Shoe Fits…
I completed this bracelet just this morning for an exhibition call for entry entitled The Perfect Fit – Shoes Tell Stories on exhibition at the Fuller Craft Museum from June 6, 2009 to January 3, 2010. Starting in February 2010, the exhibition will travel to exhibition venues around the country.
The shoes were originally cast from a vintage plastic Barbie doll shoe in sterling and then the the heels were extended via hand-fabrication techniques to enable a rivet ball head to connect each shoe link. The clasp is an extension hook off one of the heels.
Fingers crossed that I get in! I submitted a couple other pieces as well, but this was the only new piece.
