When I had my son 7 years ago, I found that there was a shortage of stylish footwear that would actually stay on little feet. I was tired of constantly buying “disposable” items, and wanted to create a kids shoe that would last, stretch as they grew, stay on, and could be used by multiple kids. I was inspired to use the scraps to make unique pieces of jewelry in an effort to be sustainable and not let anything go to waste. Combining brass geometric shapes with fringed and tasseled leather allowed me to create something new that I hadn’t seen before, wanted to wear myself and fed into my love of fashion. I design, cut, sew and piece together everything myself. My product line ranges in price from $15.00 to $45.00.
