The idea for Twinkle Toes came about while trying to find a pair of dress socks, while out of town on vacation, for my then 2 year old daughter. Trying to find a pair of fancy dress socks led me on a frustrating mall exploration for the perfect pair. After perusing some of my favorite children's specialty stores, I was shocked by the absence of cute, fun dress socks! After finally finding a pair of beaded socks in the very back crowded corner of a mall specialty store, I thought: "Why should I have to rely on expensive boutiques to find a pretty pair of socks? I can make these on my own." So was born the idea for a web-based business catering to the custom client: Twinkle Toes!

Twinkle Toes is back!

After a long summer hiatus, I am back! I am currently working on a client order and gathering up holiday buttons and beads to build up some holiday inventory.

In the meantime, I would like to post some pictures of my favorite sock orders this past year.

This pair is an all-time favorite. Button socks encompass much more detail than tri bead and pony bed socks.

This was made to match the spring Gymbo Daisy line.

These beads were custom ordered for a client looking for pastel candy.

These socks were made to match the Janie and Jack Enchanted Butterfly line.

These Easter socks were made to match Easter dresses worn by sisters.
