  Do you use a vise or similar tool to hold the shoe steady and stable when sequining?

To answer your question, no, I don't use a vise, it will damage the sequins. If I need the shoe to be steady, I just hold it in one of my hand.




We are on the home stretch with this stunning pair of ruby slippers. There's still some more work to do on the heel, and around the top opening of the left shoe.

Nearly 5,000 sequins have been sewn directly onto the shoes with a normal straight needle. This is a high quality pair of ruby slippers made by one of the world's most experienced craftswoman.

Difficult to believe that sewing of sequins is done free-hand.

Can see, though, how a vise would damage the sequins. Which leads to the following question:

  Were the original Ruby Red Slippers also crafted in a "free-hand" style and manner?

I'm using soft hands to sew every sequin and I'm not putting any pressure onto the shoe, therefore the shoe can be sewn without the aid of anything to hold it.

The original ruby slippers were most likely crafted the same way too.

A genuine handmade and hand-sewn product. Our work with this absolutely stunning pair of ruby slippers is now complete and makes you feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction because it takes a lot of time and concentration to craft a pair.

These are an exact reproduction of the original ruby slippers as worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy in the Munchkinland scene, in 1939's The Wizard of Oz. This pair had longer heels and slimmer, pointy toes on the shoes than other known film-worn pairs of ruby slippers.

Our ruby slippers can be worn, they can be displayed, and they would attract people in any performance or museum or home.

These final photos concludes our work with this stunning pair of ruby slippers in July, 2017.

A lot of hard work was put into this project, with so much focus and meditation through many weeks of sewing, and the end result is beautiful, a really beautiful pair of ruby slippers indeed.

  When you are focused on the exquisite detail work, does the sewing become a kind of mediatation where your mind is at Peace?

  The Ruby Red Slippers are radiant!

Yes, that is a great way to describe it.

The strong focus transitions into meditation because what you're doing is grab a sequin then sew it on, grab a sequin the sew it on, grab a sequin the sew it on, and you need to keep doing this for many hours each day.

I'm using hand and mind meditation, if not for meditation, I wouldn't be able to complete a beautiful pair of ruby slippers like these.

I think this is such good medicine for the soul.
Of course people pay for finished product, but the feeling of             
accomplishment must be rewarding.
