Remember that picture from last week?
Well here it is unveiled –
And here is what it looks like front on….
And the sole… What does that look like?
Isn’t that a truly wonderful creative piece?
SO, who made this exquisite master piece ……
A very talented lady Fiona Edmonds.
She shared a little about how she made this delectable shoe –
” I used a real shoe from an op shop -about a size 9 I think. I prepared the surface so that I could mosaic onto it. I used delicate morsels of damaged fine vintage china, a vintage brooch, ruby mirror glass and also the makers mark – notice where it says “pink vogue” & “queen” – with the crown? All up it took me a year to complete! ”
Wow now that’s perseverance and dedication for you!
Fiona’s main business is equally gorgeous – putting on Vintage High Teas for people.
Here is a little snip from her about us web page:
“Fiona first developed a passion for vintage china soon after her grandmother entrusted her with a small collection of fine china trio’s. Her Grandma had received many beautiful fine English cup, saucer & cake trios as thankyou gifts whenever she played piano for the silent films at her local cinema in Sydney……….”
If you live on the Central Coast of Australia or even in Sydney – what a wonderful afternoon with girlfriends.
