Commissions

All commission spots for 2025 have filled. All submissions will be scheduled for 2026 or later.
 

  • If you have ever signed up for a commission and did not follow through, your name is not eligible to be added to my commission list again.
     

  • I reserve the right to deny a commission at my discretion. This is due to another slipper maker trying to obtain my work to copy my methods. 
     

  • Payments must be made via Zelle, check, or money order. I do not accept any other payment methods.
     

  • All commissions for pumps require a non-refundable $500 deposit at the time of sign up. Commissions for the Arabian Test Shoes require a non-refundable $1000 deposit. The remaining balance must be paid before the completed slippers are shipped. You will be given an estimated time for your slippers completion. Your commission is not confirmed until the deposit has been received.
     

  • Shipping to the United States is included in the price. I do not ship pairs outside of the US.
     

  • All base shoes are created using red silk faille with kid leather interiors, mimicking the vintage style construction of the original Innes Shoe Company shoes. The pairs are hand crafted on custom made shoe lasts and feature custom made heels, leather soles, and rubber top lifts. My replicas are for display only and are not wearable.

New Metallic: $2,750.00
Slippers that look the way the originals appeared on film.

Aged: $3,000.00
Made with custom made pre-aged sequins, followed by several aging processes that remove excess metallic, resulting in a flaked translucent red appearance with silver metallic flecks throughout.

Bugle Beaded: $4,000.00
The original design for the Ruby Slippers. Based on the glass beaded pair of slippers worn by Judy Garland during the first 10 days of filming under the direction of Richard Thorpe, which were discarded for being too heavy for dancing when filming was haulted.  2mm beads and a previous style base shoe were used on the sample pair. Subsequent pairs are made on updated base shoes.

Arabian Test Shoes: $6,000.00
I have begun the process of having lasts and base shoes made for a pair of Arabian Test Shoes. These will feature custom made glass jewels in shield and honeycomb shapes that are exact duplicates of the ones used on the original pair, as shown in the photo. Not all of the rhinestone arrangements will have 4 shield shapes - some will have 3 to match the original design. The shield montees are set in custom made reproduction settings, and the honeycomb stones will be applied using sew-on button settings like the originals. As the shoemaking process involves trial and error, this pair may be discounted depending on how the base shoes turn out.
