Welcome! Perfection is boring. All my items are painted free-hand. I use no stencils or patterns. I do not sketch my designs first. When I want to paint, I load up my brushes and see where the lines take me.

How I help keep costs low AND help the environment:
I ship my items in recycled boxes and packaging. I collect and save clean boxes that would otherwise be heading to a garbage heap. If the box has a visible label, it will be wrapped carefully in thick brown paper (which is PERFECT to save and doodle on!). Your items will be securely packed with saved packing paper, so your items avoid damage, and we all avoid damaging more trees. You can still look good and be GREEN!

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Paypal payment is due within 5 days of purchase. If payment is not received within this time frame, the sale will be canceled and the item will be re-listed.
Orders are Shipped to your ETSY address! If you would like your items shipped to another address, please let me know in notes to seller!

All items are shipped First Class Mail unless otherwise stated or requested.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am not responsible for packages damaged in the mail. If your package is lost in the mail or does not arrive, please contact me promptly and I will either issue a refund or replacement.

Due to the intimate nature of shoes, only unworn footwear may be returned. Custom orders are not eligible for refunds or exchanges, unless an error on my part has been made. Returns must be received within 15 days.
Additional policies and FAQs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~CUSTOM ORDERS:
Like my designs but it's just not quite right?
Message me for custom shoes!!!

PLEASE message me personally for custom orders. Please do not use the Alchemy.

There are TWO options for custom orders:

Option #1: You have your own shoes:
I'd be more then happy to jazz up your own shoes! Simply contact me with your design ideas and I'll be more then happy to give you a price quote. Once we have determined design and price, you will be responsible for a 50% deposit. After the deposit has been made, you send me your shoes and I'll get to work! After I receive your shoes, they will be ready usually within 7 working days. Once I am finished, I will post pictures for approval and you will pay your balance before I mail them back to you.

Option #2: You don't have your own shoes:
Not a problem! I'd be more then happy to locate and paint a pair of shoes for you. However, the prices you pay will be higher then what you see in my shop. I am able to offer such low prices on my shop items because I am sometimes able to locate shoes on a good sale. I do not have a large inventory of shoes to work from and therefore will have to purchase your shoes at regular price. In most cases, I will purchase your custom base shoes from I will show you a picture of the shoes before we continue with the custom order. You will be responsible for the full price of the base shoe, plus a 50% deposit on the design. Once I am finished, (usually within 7 working days after I receive the shoes in the mail) I will post pictures for your approval. You will need to pay your remaining balance and I will ship them out to you!

If you want to request a pair of shoes in a style I have already done (but in your size), that is perfectly fine! Please don't expect the EXACT same shoe as pictured. I will, however, do my best to locate a shoe that will work and I will paint it in the same style for you. As all of my work is done completely freehand, the designs will differ slightly from item to item.

Prices may vary on customized listings depending on the availability of sizes/colors you select. Please message me for more information. I will be more then happy to give you a price quote.

All custom orders require a 50% down payment. After discussing your custom order, I will send you a paypal invoice for 50% of the price or your order. The other 50% will be payed when your item is completed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~CARE FOR YOUR SHOES:
All of my items have been finished off with a permanent flexible gloss to protect it. However, if you are especially rough on your items, you should still expect some wear. To help elongate the life of your items:

Do not submerge your items in water to clean them. Instead wipe them gently with a soft damp cloth.

Do not leave your items in extreme heat/sunlight for extended periods of time. This may cause the protective gloss to become "tacky" on some fabrics.

Remember that your shoes are original pieces of artwork, and while they will be stunners at any inside party or gathering, they will not hold up extremely well if you plan on going hiking or doing some construction work.

If you care for your items properly, you should be able to enjoy your original wearable art for years to come!

If you have any questions, please contact me before purchasing! Thank you! :)

Because all of my shoes are purchased brand new, I CANNOT offer 50% off wholesale pricing. I would be LOSING money!

All of my items are OOAK, and I am NOT an assembly line. However, if you'd like to order multiple pairs, you can enjoy the discounts below. Please message me for more information on multiple orders.
