About

Self made from the ground up. A total accident resulted in a full time venture on Etsy and now then a full fledged company.

2009 -- Where it all began: In February 2009, as the first signs the economy was beginning to decay Jason found himself in a position where he needed to find additional income to be able to pay the monthly bills. He started out seeking additional employment, but soon found himself realizing that the situation was quickly becoming dire as companies were not hiring and he would have to look for alternate options in the meantime.

With a heavy heart, he began to place items on eBay. Digging through the closet he discovered props and costumes that had accumulated from various student films and theater productions over his college years. There were some vintage 50’s dresses and a pair of hand made Sequin Shoes all gathering dust. He figured the dresses were going to be an easy sell, but the shoes he wasn’t too sure about as they were made for a one-night performance and were (in his opinion) far from a quality product.

After a week the dresses sold as expected, but to his surprise there had also been an inquiry on the shoes. It was someone looking for a keepsake to give her daughter as a graduation gift since she had played Dorothy in a high school production of the "Wizard of Oz" that year. As the shoes being sold were too big she asked if they could be made in a smaller size. After agreeing to make the pair in her size he dug out the sequin roll that was purchased for the original pair and purchased some more rhinestones from the craft store to be able to complete the new pair. As he painstakingly glued one strand at a time into the pumps he had what can best be described as a “light-bulb” moment. What if he were to start selling these full time for the additional income that he needed? Researching online, he discovered nobody was selling Custom Sequin Shoes. This was the answer! And so he began to list shoes and people began to find him.

2013 -- Jason met Elizabeth!

2014 --Elizabeth began becoming more involved with the process. She started learning how to make the shoes, checking the inventory and systems and sending the packages. She began experimenting with glitter and rhinestone options on the shoes which we began to incorporate in as options and they started to sell to great reviews.

2015 -- At the beginning of the year the company's sales reached the point where upgrading it from a sole proprietorship to a LLC became a necessity. (Which was great news for us.) It was also growing to where Jason could not do all of the work by himself anymore and was able to hire Elizabeth as a part time employee. Since Jason also still works in the film industry here in Albuquerque Elizabeth was soon placed in the position of managing the company in his absence in the spring months. This came with it's own learning curve, but also helped the company grow in a lot of ways.

In September Jason proposed and Elizabeth said yes! They look forward to many more years of adding sparkle to the world one shoe at a time!

FAQS:

Q: I have a narrow foot. Do you have narrow sizes?
A: Unfortunately no. The brands I use are true to width. Medium and Wide widths only(Depending on the shoe type).

Q: Do your sequin shoes run big or small in size?
A: The shoes are true to marked size, with the exception of the ballet flats. If you are unsure of your size, please order 1/2 size larger than you normally wear.

Q: Durability...Will they hold up?
A: The shoes are made with a very flexible glue to allow full mobility of the foot. The sequins are attached to a fabric prior to placing on the shoe, which makes them very sturdy. The glue is strong and cannot be easily removed when tugged on. Naturally nicks may occur if one stumbles and falls late one night on the town. However the shoes are easily repairable.

Q: Why do the shoes in your pictures all seem different?
A: Since we do not manufacture the shoes we sequin, the shoe shape will inevitably change as styles are discontinued and replaced with the latest trends. We continue to use a particular model until a supply has been completely exhausted. If we cannot find the same model on any of my alternate suppliers, the shoe will be changed to the most similar new shoe on the market. On average the shape of the shoes we sequin will change at least once per year and the photographs are updated accordingly.
*The additional photographs featured on the listings may not represent the most current model and are usually customer photos.
