My Cinderella Slippah


My sculpture instructor Kazu, called this the "Diva", for a gallery show that she (shoe) was in at our school's Koa Gallery. It's a small ring which I made in an Intro. to Sculpture class (Kapiolani Community College). She's of sterling silver..which was molten to a liquid (think red, hot, lava) then cast in a kiln..crazy process. I first made a mold of the shoe by sculpting it out of wax. was a one deal thingi and unfortunately I did not make more of her and I don't have access to the sort of machinery or a blow torch either...but she might be available for viewings...that is when I'm wearing her...haha. She fits perfectly on my finger. I'm not sure why I keep refering to my sculpture as "she" if it were "SHE" is. Enjoy!

P.S. These photos were taken by my friend Galina's husband at a gallery show on the windward side of Oahu. He had an awesome camera and tripod...I felt special! I scanned the photos, hopefully it came out ok.


  1. I love this piece, it's my favorite so far. Hope to see more of your jewelry designs here. Hugs & Kissies ~ Mami

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to.
