Using sheets of patterned clay, bits of fabric and hardware finds, Dayle Doroshow satisfies her craving for shoes.

She hunts for historic patterns or fashionable footwear that appeal to her and then lets her imagination take flight. With the addition of a pin back, the shoes become brooches. Dayle shows the basic process on this free video tutorial.
