Details

Recycle ~ Reuse ~ Re-purpose ~ Reinvent

This " U~Nique " Sandal is made from Re-purposed Chocolate Brown Corduroy and embellished with Authentic Sparkling Austrian Swarovski Crystals & Embroidery.

Using a Teva Mandlyn Base, not only are these flips extremely comfortable they look amazing day or night!

I had 2 foot surgeries, and ACL/Meniscus repair on my knee this past fall/winter. They are the only sandals/flips/shoes that I could wear that didn't hurt!! The fact that I live in Northern Michigan did make it a challenge at first, my feet were comfy but cold. Then my daughter suggested toe socks. Whoo Hoo , not only were my feet comfortable, they were warm too!! I get that Toe socks with flip flops are not for everyone , but I was desperate. Who knows maybe I will start a new trend!

o Just like your favorite pair of jeans you will want to wear your sandals everyday!!
o Teva's Famous Cushy Comfort
o Soft ribbon toe and ribbon lined strap
o Not your teen's flimsy flip flop

I have a work studio in my home, and love having the flexibility to work in the evenings and on weekends. I purchase my fabric from the clearance racks at various Goodwill's, Salvation Army's & resale shops all over the country. I love the challenge of a good hunt. Searching for that perfect piece of unwanted fabric and creating something special. Plus... at the same time I am supporting charitable organizations , and locally owned businesses.

I recently added The U~Nique Flip Flop Sandal Design to my studio. All of the "U~Nique Flips are created from fabrics & colors that aren't as abundant as blue jean denim . Velvet, Suede, Corduroy...They make the "hunt" so much more fun. Check out all of the flips in this category, and read my inspiration, the story behind the creation.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The U~Nique Flip Flop Sandals were created after one of my friends came to me and asked if I could design a sandal for her that she could wear to a "Black Tie" Event. Sue already owned 4 pair of my denim Flips, and said they were the only comfortable sandals she owned. came up with the idea to create a new line of flip flops from re-purposed non-denim fabric. After an extensive search for a suitable fabric I found a pair of repurposed black velvet slacks with a waistband perfect for Sue's "Black Tie" Affair! Embellished with silver metallic wave embroidery and authentic sparkling diamond Swarovski Crystals Sue's U~Nique Sandals were the perfect complement to her ankle length gown!
The U~Nique Flip Flop Sandal was born!!
My next request came from my friend Sonya, who purchased my flips for all of her bridesmaids to wear in her outdoor wedding.
The special requests have been coming in as fast as I can make them.
I LOVE MY GIRLFRIENDS!!

More Info

As a hobby, I have always liked to create unique items. Over the years I have made stained glass sun catchers, magnets, jewelry, wall hangings, candles, and the list goes on... As the economy started its downward spiral, I lost my job as a graphic designer. With 3 kids, & 3 dogs, I needed to work, but really needed flexibility. With no job prospects in sight, I decided to try and turn my hobby into a business. But something was missing in the products I had created in the past. They were really great, but lacked the uniqueness I was going for. I needed to design something that was one of a kind, eco friendly, and gave back in some way. After lots of soul searching, brainstorming, and red wine :) Crystal River Designs was born!

I grew up on Glen Lake located in Glen Arbor Michigan, adjacent to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore. Good Morning America recently gave Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore, the title of "Good Morning America's" #1 Most Beautiful Place in America. I named my business Crystal River Designs after The Crystal River, which winds through Glen Arbor and connects Lake Michigan to Glen Lake. My designs use crystals & like the flow of the river, there is something new around every bend.


At Crystal River Designs, we create earth friendly products from reclaimed ~ recycled fabrics. One of my favorite designs is our "Walk for a Cause" Flip Flop. A portion of every sale is donated to the cause the sandal was designed for. Check out my studio. Thanks for Looking!

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore
The popular Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive located within Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake shore is officially open for the 2014 season! For more information on the 7.4 mile self-guided paved tour see the details below!

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake shore offers magnificent views over sweeping vistas of Lake Michigan from atop high dunes, miles of perfect freshwater beaches, forested wilderness islands, hiking trails and a series of preserved historic farmsteads. The glistening waters of Lake Michigan make a stunning backdrop for the dunes and forests, while abundant wildlife and a diverse ecosystem thrill the nature lover.

The abundance of hiking trails throughout the Park offer visitors the chance to take in the awe-inspiring vistas of Sleeping Bear. Recently, the much-anticipated five-mile 'Dune Climb to Glen Arbor' portion of the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail was opened to the public. When complete, this trailway will run for 27 miles from the northern end of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore to a point just south of Empire.


The Legend

Sleeping Bear took its name from an Ojibway legend about its formation. According to the story, a mother bear and her two cubs were driven by forest fires from what is now Wisconsin and forced to swim across Lake Michigan. When the mother bear reached the Michigan shore, she turned to discover that her cubs had vanished. The Great Spirit was so touched by her plight that he had her fall off to sleep there, creating Sleeping Bear Dune, and marked the place where her cubs disappeared by creating the Manitou Islands.
