Hurricane

I designed and made this glove in semester 1 for a uni folio. It's a customized vintage 50's velvet opera glove encrusted with broken and reclaimed jewelery. I was inspired by crabs (not the STI, haha) and freddie kruger. I used a wood and metal glue to adhere the jewelery along with a tiny bit of hand sewing. I made the nails out of hammered toys. I was pretty pleased with the result once it was complete! It was a quick, fun and experimental process. Please excuse my crappy photos!

You're welcome! :) I would love a black pair! But, I'm almost thinking a bold color would look cute, too! Maybe it would be too much?
Do you live in Australia? I'm just worried the shipping would be a lot :/
