Space Shoes

I just wanted to let everyone know that I'll no longer be making space shoes (apart from the orders to which I've already committed). My reasons for this are varied, but the main themes are that I don't really find joy in painting them any more - I feel kind of like a machine, and I really have to concentrate on studying, as I'm in my final year of high school and have set my goals pretty high. Thank you to everyone who has liked the shoes, bought a pair or generally supported me in any way. It means a lot to me, and I've gotten further than I ever thought it would. I will still be selling other things from time to time over at my etsy shop, and probably more space shoes in specific sizes, until I clear out all my stock.
For those still chasing a pair, you can buy similar ones here, from kustom kix.

Life lesson: There will always be someone better than you.

Wedges handpainted by Kustom Kix.
I've seen these before, but I always thought they were photoshopped. They're not.
How amazing is that!?
I'm blown away. Props to KK for their amazing work.

Space Walks

Here are the latest space shoe photos. I'm a little excited for this Sunday night, when they'll be photographed by an actual photographer for a local magazine. Eeeee!
P.S. anyone looking to buy a necklace should know both have been sold, but I might be making more soon.

Nooks & Crannies

I love these nostalgic small spaces made by Chris from Get Pretty Things.

What's your favourite book?

Geometric Necklaces

I've been busy! In the past couple of days I made these felt necklaces and did a little amateur photo shoot with some space shoes (I'll show the photos in another post) and to top it off  I started my last year of schooling today, juggling a photo shoot requests from a local magazine and 9 pending space shoe orders! I've been busy and I'm gong to stay busy apparently.
I have, however, found time to make these felt necklaces the newest addition to my Etsy store. I hand cut them from sheeted felt, generating the asymmetric pattern as I worked, making each truly unique. The 'thicker' one in the second and third photographs has already sold, but the thinner one is still available here and ready to be shipped.
