I've wanted to make some silver shoes for a long time but just now jumped into the project. I've been studying jewelry design techniques from online and local classes for the past year and have finally built up enough equipment to venture out on my own. Here is an EXTREMELY ROUGH DRAFT of what my first heel will look like. While I'm waiting for my carving wax to arrive, I had sculpted a rudimentary shape out of some wax I had around the house. I chose stiletto heels because I love them, lol, and have a few pairs of my own! Also I just love how well they can pull a couture outfit together. (which I plan to do also, sometime, eventually....) I'm planning a woodland themed outfit so I thought some small leaves, vines, and possibly a butterfly and tiny flowers on the heels would look so beautiful and delicate. 2015-12-21_12-19-16 by EarthShine Doll, on Flickr

A little progress update....my neck and eyes hurt! lol! I've got the general leaf shapes filled in, now I will go back and sharpen and carve out the swirls. There are also little flowers on the toe...a little hard to see in the wax right now...but I can't wait to see them in silver!
