About this Barbie Doll series: I love and collect miniatures. I had collected vintage miniatures shoes that inspired me to design and make shoe earrings and shoe pendants. I already had a collection of molds that I had designed so when the Barbie movie came out, I cast this collection. All are solid sterling silver, sanded, filed, and polished. I then fabricated the earring hooks also in sterling silver.
Why wear plastic when you can wear silver? I made sterling silver Barbie doll shoes to fit my Barbie and a series of earrings to wear.

When I am designing my pieces, I want my designs to be accessible to everyone. For my pieces to be in-style; to feel good, to look wonderful on, fit or lay well. All of my designs are handmade by me in my studio.
