Cat, those are simply amazing. So much time, work and patience went into creating them, but from what I see well worth the effort. Absolutely gorgeous. I do hope you get to wear them from time to time. It would seem a shame not to show them off now and then.
Dawn, thank you! I'm still working on them, but they won't be fully beaded because there are spots I simply can't reach well enough or that are too hard for me to even want to try (the reinforced heel). There are at least 30 hours in these now. If you want to try something like that, don't use shoes that have no laces, but elastic bands on the tongue instead. It really is a hassle if you can't open them up.

I can't get over these beaded shoes, or your other pair. The beading on these two look like something out of a Van Gogh painting (and for me there are few higher compliments) - the blue is like one of his skies, and the gold is like one of the wheat fields.
