Cruising around Etsy I always find the most interesting and unique items. This little stiletto heel needlework necklace is quite a find. Made by Janick of Montreal, Canada, who runs Neawear on Etsy. She has many special jewelry and wall pieces to choose from in her shop- you must have a look. She has also just done an interview for the Storque- "Quit Your Day Job"- it is linked in her shop announcement.
What inspired you to make this product?
I started making cross-stitch necklaces and thought it would be nice to combine a jewelry love with a shoe addiction! Stilettos are not always for everyday life, but with this piece I felt people could have both the flats and high heels at the same time!
What are your favorite materials to use?
Linen, of course! I find it so much more rich in texture than traditional Aida cloth for needlework. I love metal also, and everything mixed-media, so I try to mix everything up in my embroidery work often too, it keeps everything interesting!
What are some of the websites you most frequently visit?
I blog a lot ( http://fonetik.wordpress.com ), so I read many many blogs as well. A few of my favorites at this moment would have to be Poppytalk, Perfectbound, For Me For You... Other sites I visit daily are places like Flickr, Twitter, Google Analytics, and of course, Etsy allllll the time!
