I latched on to the part of the brief which read : “… with no limitation in size of your shoe. It can be either the shoe alone or as part of a whole piece.” So I had a lovely time moulding elements of this famous Shakespearean Play with sugar :)

This simple little ornamental shoe is inspired by the ‘Wedge’ shoe during the Elizabethan/16th Century era. I decided on ‘A Shoe for Juliet Capulet’ to match her masque and dress she wore in the 2013 film version of Romeo and Juliet. The base of the shoe is more of a ‘cushion’ shape than the shoe sole of that era. As this play is set in Venice (and naturally theatrical) I couldn’t resist bringing in a bit of blood on a white rose to represent the very sad ending. (Juliet carried a bouquet of white roses during the masquerade scene). The skellie hand is actually one I made for the 2014 Sugar Skull collab….!

This has been the most amazing fun! :)

All templates and supports are home made throughout.

A couple of progress piccies here xx

the INSPIRATION – the simple piping on the shoe and ‘cushion’ is based on the dress embroidery.

Loving all the shoes in this collab and the inspirational stories behind the designs :) Thank you again Heba!! xxx
