 Bianca,

                                     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 a large mother of pearl bow on the elongated toes. Platinum & creamy- white beads beads and white braiding edge the  gently curving top line and an impressed flower pattern, a theme from the Rococo era, adorns the surface of the shoes.
