The Girl with the Glass Slipper

…Cinderella bides her time. She is faithful to her dreams, keeping them secret and nourishing them until they are strong enough to bear fruit. Somehow, Cinderella knows that imagination ultimately creates reality. She does not yield to those around her who would deny her essential nobility. She never thinks of herself as a servant. The insight is to keep faith in ourselves. If we remember who we are and keep working on our dreams, more might be possible than anyone thought…

Inspired by Annie Leikovitz’s Cinderella “Where every Cinderella story comes true” which beautifully portrait by Scarlet Johansen (see picture no. 4), I was aspired to create this charming little piece – The Girl with the Glass Slipper, using the shades of blue. I have to say that it was immensely fun to create & every bits & piece of it was melodiously synonym.

The Girl with the Glass Slipper comprises of an intricate frame coiled intensively in zigzag pattern halfway through to give it a distinctive appeal. Within them, are motives of curls & swirls bedecked with tiny authentic Thai Beads, glorious & brilliant AAA Micro Faceted Mystic Topaz Oval Briolette that echo the likes of Cinderella’s glass slipper and the soothing lovely Baby Blue Chalcedony reminiscent her beautiful flowing blue gown.

On both side and bottom of the frame, you’ll find triplets of dazzling AAA gem grade Sky Blue Topaz (amazing colors) with Swarovski crystal of mystic heat in Blue Zircon & Turquoise, producing a very sparkling effect as they sway. Very tantalizing indeed. And lastly, to finalize this glam creation, more girly clusters of Swarovski crystals of the same color adding extra bling just above the intricate frame.

This beautiful piece drapes approximately 3” from top of the sterling silver lever-back ear-wires and curves 1” at her widest point. It is absolutely a statement-making on its own. A wearable piece, extremely light & comfy ;)

All of the silver was given an oxidized finished and polished to bring out the details of the wire work.
