Learn how-to make a pair of summer sandals in #AroundTheWorldIn80Crafts with Theano in Limassol, Cyprus.
I love my island, Cyprus! Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, we are blessed with warm summer weather nearly all year round and endless beautiful beaches, some of which are considered to be the best in the world! The beach is always the best place to be. I am in complete bliss when I am there, just lying on the sand and letting the waves splash my feet, collecting endless seashells, sea glass and pebbles. Only when I am at the beach or creating jewelry, sandals and crafts am I in complete paradise and peace! You could find your seashells from your last beach trip and use those for your design. Together with the lace these sandals are just perfect if you have a beach wedding to attend!
Although I absolutely love the beach, my dream is to visit romantic Florence, Italy, home of the Renaissance where art and romance become one and visit some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world. I would love to visit the many museums and just walking with so much history around me, this is true inspiration and I would love to be able to just sit in a park and create whatever I am inspired to make, something rustic and romantic, with my beautiful surroundings. As an artist and designer this would be my dream come true!
