"The First Handshake Embellishment"

"The First Handshake Embellishment"


This whimsical shoe embellishment features hand sculpted leatherette flowers on the toes emphasized by delicate lace shaped leaves and feathers. The blue center, as shown here, can be altered to your taste. 

Further embellishment of leaves, lace and heart shaped pearls at the ankle continue the design. 

To complete the design, I added sparkle to the feathers for an additional touch of fanciful shimmer. 

All of my work is created as an art piece- movable sculptures for your feet. 

Please be aware of slight variations in the shoes since each pair is made to order. 

Custom Work: 

Custom variations are always an option. I would be happy to discuss your ideas to make them a perfect match for you.

How the process works: 

1.) Send your own unembellished shoes to me- that way you know they fit perfectly!  I have found a website that has great base shoes that are comfortable, affordable and high quality to purchase from called light in the box (www.lightinthebox.com).  I have provided examples from the company that would be good options for this design. 

Find your unembellished shoes easily:

Very close to the original sample is the first unembellished shoe pictured.  It is a stretch satin basic pump with a touch of lace toe.  The heel height measures approx. 3.5" and is $39.99.  To purchase this shoe to be embellished,  copy and paste the link:  


The second unembellished shoe is a stretch satin peep toe wedge.  The heel height is approx. 3.5" and is $39.99.  To purchase this shoe to be embellished, copy and paste link:

2.)  Select the shoe you desire and make sure that they are comfortable and a good fit.  When you have found your perfect base shoe, ship in a box to: 

Rachael Jensen 

184 Regent Street 

Saratoga Springs, NY, 12866

3.) Upon receipt of your shoes and after we have discussed any changes to this design, I will begin the embellishment work.  The process will take about two weeks, as all work is done by hand.

4.)  I will send your newly transformed shoes back to you to enjoy!
