This is a size 7 black stiletto, upcycled of course into a new life. I removed the top of the shoe, sanded it, drilled holes for drainage, and then planted it with a stetsonia coryne cactus. The cactus has razor-sharp black spines on its head. The white star-like spines on its fleshy lime green body create geometric patterns.
The heel is studded with little rhinestones intended to shimmer on the dance floor, now they make make tiny rainbows in the sunlight.
*This shoe has really worked it! A few of the rhinestones have fallen out from the acrobatic tricks of the previous owner.
The cactus plant will need very bright light and just a little water from time to time. In return, it'll repay you with a stark reminder of how hard it is to...well, to be a woman.
sustainability: I use only natural and organic fertilizers and soil. most of my plants are from a local Berkeley grower who is 100% certified organic
