Mosaic Pointes

Thought I’d post the finished ballet shoe… It’s now on display at South Bay Dance Center in San Jose, CA.

Materials were stained glass, vitreous glass, mirror, millefiori, Van Gogh glass, diamante thread, faux rhinestones and a Swarovski crystal. The base was a pre-loved ballet shoe.

I named it Kit, for the owner. Hope it’s happy there. I’m sure it is!
