Crystal and Pearl Shoe hanging decoration
Essential, functional, and fashionable, where would we be without the right pair of heels to elevate a look from plain to party? Inspired by 17th century shoe fashion, this sumptuous hanging decoration is handmade by artisans using the traditional zardozi technique of gold and silver metal thread embroidery, embellished with dazzling crystals, beads, and faux pearls on a luxurious pale pink velvet background with a foam filling. Originally created in Persia to keep a soldier's feet in stirrups and worn exclusively by men, by the mid 17th century, high heels were the pinnacle of fashion for all. Fabulous footwear is often shaped by social convention, from towering Renaissance Chopines to Baroque Heels, and 1950s stilettos, the pleasure (and pain) of high heels is here to stay. A fantastically fashionable memento to add to your shoe collection!
