The Copy [Final Step]



This is my final object for The Copy Project in the Jewellery Design Laboratory class based on the idea of high heels.
Is it Beauty or Vanity?
A cage or a few inches closer to heaven?
Isn't it freedom when you can choose your own slavery?
And can this be a jewellery piece when you experience it in your body, even if you can not actually wear it?

Woah. that's cruelty!

Very conceptual and interesting. It's not a real shoe right??

hehe Kathleen, thank you (I guess).
It's a pretty real solid metal object, hand cut, hand pierced, hand soldered by me, is it a real shoe?
You tell me ;)
