Blue Glass Barefoot Sandals

Blue Glass Barefoot Sandals

I have been colecting blue glass beads for a while.
Dark blue, light blue, deep blue, royal blue. I've colected all of them.

When I had a beautiful bunch I've started grouping them in what a pair of barefoot sandals would be.

This is the final selection. A beautiful pair of unique blue glass barefoot sandals.

These ones are not with me anymore. They are flying to California, Maryland, in the United States of America.

I hope the new owner loves them as much as I do. And wish her all the good luck and happy life!

Barefoot Sandals

Barefoot sandals are somewhat of a product of evolution from South Asia. They were first developed as variations of jewelry that was designed specifically for the feet that was worn as a symbol of ceremonies and celebrations, especially for brides that were celebrating their upcoming nuptials and vows. The are many variations of barefoot sandals such as materials used or styles that are made as well as how much area of the top of the foot they cover. However, they all have the same thing in common in that, they don't have soles like other sandals or shoes, and they usually have a loop in which to slide the second or third toe through and a tie or clasp that wraps around the ankle to hold them into place. They are meant more for decoration than practicality or protection for the feet. Conveniently, the beauty of barefoot sandals are that they can be worn by themselves or actually with traditional sandals that are open faced that don't cover or interrupt the sandal.

The feet have been a desired canvas for various forms of body art, Mehndi, tattoo's and jewelry for centuries and has become popular throughout the globe for various reasons. One of the most ceremonial and widely used forms of decoration for the feet comes in the form of Mehndi which is customarily done on both the feet and hands for brides who are preparing for their upcoming weddings. In other examples, the feet can be adorned with many forms of jewelry, barefoot sandals, tattoo's, painted toe nails and many other things as a decoration and statement for the feet.


Traditional Weddings


The image below shows a traditional Mehndi design on the feet that are adorned with foot jewelry that could also be considered barefoot sandals based on modern design variations and interpretations. The style and tradition originated in ancient India.




Casual, Fun and Flirty


Barefoot sandals have also evolved into a temporary form of body art and body jewelry that adorns the feet. This is where styles, materials and colors become a bit more creative. Listed below are examples of these styles.
