|First they take large pieces of thick "cuoio" leather and cut them into various sizes depending on the heel shapes and stack them together with glue between each layer.|
|The layers of cuoio leather are like solid logs after the glue solidifies.|
|Then, there is a machine that is like a deli meat slicer that slices the stacked leather logs into thin slices.|
|The slices of stacked leather are brushed with a treatment and placed on racks before being applied with glue to the heels.|
|These heels have are waiting to have the outside stacked cuoio applied. There are quite a few more steps in the process, but seeing as I'm not a photo journalist - I had to get back to my day job and work on some shoes!|

Evan Rachel Wood is looking beyond fab in my SS 11 "Modern" heels in this week's LA Times Magazine Cover shoot! Love! I met her at the Mildred Pierce premiere and she was so stunning in person - a total movie star glow. We talked shoes for a few minutes and I'm proud she's a fan! She was super sweet and kind. She's a keeper!
