Miniature Fantasy Shoes

These miniature shoes of polymer clay, intricately modeled and painted by hand, are each unique. No molds are used, and no two are exactly alike. The first one I ever made reminded me of footwear for an imaginary character from the Land of Oz. That provided inspiration for many more fantasy shoes, but some were also inspired by questions from my daughter. “Can you make one that looks like the moon? How about a mermaid?” Naming them is half the fun. In 2004, a film crew from HGTV spent a day at my home filming the creation of a shoe for the “Crafters Coast to Coast” series. The shoes themselves are in private collections, but images of them are delightful as Gift Enclosure Cards, available in my Shop.  Set 1 & Set 2 have 10 different designs each.
