An Afrocentric Flair

The Kwanzaa Bride and I are on a journey to create the most FABULOUS Afrocentric Wedding. At one of our "Show and Tell" fittings. she brought her shoes for the second drop dead dress I am making.

Although they were very nice, I thought they were lacking a bit of .....well, Afrocentricity. We talked about gluing a cowrie shell in the front, but I worried it could fall off, plus it wasn't enough pizazz.

I also wanted to add beading. By poking a hole into the front, the beads were wired on along with the one cowrie shell. The Kwanzaa Bride says you can sell her anything with a cowrie shell.

The shoe looks great and will go perfectly with the dress.
