This purse is indeed a show stopper. In some ways, it is more a functional sculpture than a purse. With my focus on recycling and global warming, depicting one of the animals affected by our actions in polluting the earth is an ironic and poignant visual image. An elephant made from one of the very materials that may be negatively affecting its health and future is subtle on one hand, (most people think the material is leather) but upon a little reflection a very strong environmental statement.
This purse has two handles. One is a shoulder strap and the other is for hand carrying.
They are made of steel cable and clear tubing. The top of the elephants head is the opening of the purse with a flap that snaps closed. His tusks and mouth are made of white and red vinyl. The eyes are surrounded with soft recycled leather for a realistic wrinkled look. Large ears are attached with vintage leather buttons and hand stitching allowing just enough freedom to do a bit of flapping. The whole piece is assembled with hand stitching.

Size” Back of head to tip of trunk - 23”

All of my designs are original and signed my me. I hand make every piece and each is unique with its own special features.
