 Blanche,

                                     from my White series, a range embracing motifs of impressed flower patterns against a pale creamy background .  The shape of the shoes is very Rococo, a style of art and ornament associated with the excesses of French High Society and Louis XV reign.  During this time trimmings on clothes and shoes were elaborate and costly using all manner of lace, ribbon and flowers. The shoes have the Louis heel, spayed at the base and waisted and have double mother of pearl bows on the elongated toes. Tiny platinum beads decorate the toes and the gently curving lines of braid and platinum beads are interspersed with white along the top edge.
