Description

*Note: You are not purchasing finished shoes if you buy this listing. You are only purchasing a hank of approximately 10,000 custom made, color matched sequins.*

This listing is for a hank of approximately 10,000 custom made sequins that have been color matched to aged sequins from the 1920s/1930s. They measure just under 5mm. These unique, incredibly high quality sequins were made by the world's most respected sequin manufacturer that is the "go to" company for haute couture clothing companies.

Several sample sequins were clipped from a 1920s/1930s sequin flower that was created using the same dark red sequins used on the original ruby slippers. These sample sequins were sent to the sequin manufacturer who color matched them at multiple points, allowing for a very unique multi-color look. These sequins are not one flat color and show different hues and shades depending on the lighting, which is much more evident when the sequins are viewed in person and sewn down. Viewing these sequins on the hanks do not give any sort of idea as to the actual appearance of the sequins, as while on the hank they still completely metallic. For the most aged look, sew the sequins further apart so that they remain somewhat translucent. Overlapping the sequins will result in a mostly metallic appearance.

The sequins were created with what we are referring to as a "demetallicized" treatment, meaning the sequins are neither fully translucent nor fully metallic, although the sequins do appear more metallic in most lighting (one photo above shows the sequins sewn down with a light behind them - the light is visible, showing that they are indeed translucent). These custom made plastic sequins were also given an aging treatment on one side, which is visible from the other side as well. Technically they can be sewn down either way, but I recommend sewing the sequins down with the aged/speckled side down as it seems to give the most natural look.
