This purse is 9"x6"x1 1/2" and the handle is 17". The inside is un- lined.This IS the first purse I ever design or made (with beads) and was wonderfully SURPRISED that the very first beading contest I ever entered and won Bronze Medal. I AM VERY PROUD!
THIS IS A SPECIAL ORDER ITEM!
This handbag is made with ALL top quality beads & thread. I will NOT sell this PURSE, BUT will make one JUST FOR YOU! You can even pick some of the colors if you want! It takes 2-3 months to complete one.( ETSY WILL ONLY LET ME STATE 8-10 WEEKS...COULD BE A LITTLE LONGER...I KEEP IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH BUYER & SEND PIC'S EVERY WEEK!
You might think my prices to be high, but if you really broke it down...some purses can have on a CONSERVATIVE figure of 100 hours a week and then if it does take lets say 8 weeks...that's 800 hours...at let's say the full $1750 for this size & lined....I'm not even getting $2 an hour! But if I were to charge lets say $5 an hour x 800 hrs would = $4000 or what if it did take a whole 12 weeks...$12,000 so you see, I'm TRYING to keep prices reasonable! ( plus I'm paying the shipping in US)
BEING a special order, I can also change the size if desired....maybe you want this design in a messenger bag style...it can be done! ( price will be adjusted) I want YOU to understand that when I'm making a "special order" or a purse like this I'm beading anywhere from 8 to 14 hours A DAY until completion.
Remember,I guarantee ALL of my bead work for 1 yr. BUT on my PURSES,I will go 2 yrs.
But you need to realize that if you want to use it as an EVERY DAY purse you MUST take great care....beads are glass & will break if mistreated.I've been using one as an everyday purse & it's lasted almost 6 yrs. SO FAR!
This would make a great piece to pass generation to generation.
The beads are size 11, and I use Fireline thread and EACH bead is double thread sewed through 8 times!!!!
