Craftastic! - a DIY spectacular

I've been up to some major crafting and "doing it myself" lately. I've already shared the lion necklace that I made and am inappropriately taking too much credit for, so now I'd like to show you a couple new projects that I've recently finished.

Shoe chains! Inspired by Lanvin Spring 2010.

Worn with Aldo pumps, Current/Elliott boyfriend jeans, Wilfred silk pocket tank and H&M sequin jacket.

Feathered shoes! Inspired by a pair of suede pumps in need of a pick-me-up.

Worn with Aldo pumps, Current/Elliott boyfriend jeans, Wilfred silk pocket tank and H&M faux fur jacket.

I swear these DIYs were much more involved than stranding a couple of chains through a pendant and calling it mine. To more DIYs!
