‘Cinderella’s Revenge’ by Emerald Faerie

I freaking love chandeliers! Obviously for the sparkle factor, but I am also attracted to the old world and regal quality of these glittery beasts. I don't own one, but have been collecting bits and pieces of them from estate sales and hope to one day get around to assembling my own....

This particular show stopper is inspired by the haute couture shoes of Terry De Havilland --designer Fiona Gall of Emerald Faerie bespoke lighting collections, created this magnificent Chandelier! 'Cinderella's Revenge' is Gall's latest sculptural lighting and fiber optic illumination. It echos De Havilland's glamorous materials used in his shoes, the shape of the 7-inch heels and the tools used in the process to create the shoes! That's is what hooked me! My favorite parts of making jewelry are the tools and stones.

Simply stunning with it's dramatic 8-ft drop, and fiber optic illumination. This chandelier is a sparkling altar to the love affair of shoes.Even more amazingness! De Havilland returned the compliment of this over the top homage by designing a pair of shoes especially for ‘Cinderella’s revenge' made of gold & silver iguana skin. How luxurious & exciting metallic iguana skin is! Just those words together on paper have me salivating. These special shoes are suspended in the apex of the chandelier. The shoes hang spot lit surrounded by a elegant curtain of glass, metallic chain, Swarovski crystal, and other carefully selected opulent details. Even Miniature magnifying glasses to allow viewers to take a closer look, and admire the craftsmanship!

Cinderella's Revenge has just been installed in the women's shoe department at Liberty of London and next up will be the subject of four film shorts by Catherine Taylor.
