Antoni Gear's Profile

About

I've always had a love of ballet & all the costuming that's involved in this art, but ever since I was a little girl, ballet shoes have held a place in my heart. Perhaps I'm a frustrated ballerina. Well, if so I'm certainly working out my frustration in a manner I enjoy.
I began this with a vague idea & basic sewing skills combined with an aptitude for crafting, never thinking this "hobby" would become a major part of my life. After completing my first ballet slippers, (a sort of prototype pair that I'd made from some synthetic "leather" I'd recovered from an old carry-bag) I was quite amazed with the results. So I've kept making my slippers & I still love doing so.
