I accepted a one month challenge of minimalist living. The challenge involved ridding myself of unnecessary items each day of the month totaling 496 items in 31 days. One night as I lay awake in my bed trying to identify the items to rid myself of the following day, a great idea sparked...recycle my stylish heels and turn them into functional and fashionable clock art!

Like each of us humans, each heel has a story. Some of the heels were donated by my fellow artist friends like Las Vegas Showgirls, while others were rescues purchased at Good Will and Salvation Army, and others ordered unworn from a warehouse.

Some heels have scratches and knicks showcasing maturity and wild nights out, while others are missing minor pieces having lived a life supporting the being it nurtured step after step, and yet others are full of youth and flawless beauty having never experienced the warmth and wrath of a human. It is these qualities that make each heel clock unique and of special character, which is why I named each heel clock after a friend who inspired the design!
As an artist and human being, it is my duty to give back and spread compassion to others. So I have chosen to spotlight a non-profit and donate a portion of proceeds from every heel clock sold!
