  • Handmade
  • Materials: metal mesh purse, rhinestone buckle, angel child holy card

This early 1900s antique metal mesh chatelaine framed bag, with the touch of an Angel and Child, is perfect for a special evening out. I came upon 5 of these chatelaine purses at an auction and could not believe my luck! This is something completely different for me, as jewelry is my thing. But this chatelaine bag dates to the era I am so passionate about. I have added my special touches to it. This one features a chain link strap, a lovely floral design on the frame, and a kiss lock closure. The beaded fringe along the bottom featured three metal ball drops, but I replaced one with a jewelry remnant to complement the picture in the rhinestone buckle frame that I embellished this bag with. The picture was taken from a very old holy card, and it is covered with a sheet of mica to preserve it. This bag is stamped on the interior of the frame with 'Ger. Silver' and a hallmark.(see picture 4)

There is a small amount of oxidation on the inside edge of the mesh near the frame's inner corners (see picture 5). This is not visible on the outside.

Dimensions of the bag itself are 4" tall by 4 1/2" wide. The last two pictures have a pair of ear wires in the lower right corner for relative size.

I work with antique and vintage parts. Some may show signs of wear or age. Please look at each picture closely. I have tried to show all aspects of my work. Please contact me before purchasing if you have any questions or would like more clarity in a picture. I like to think that older items have a character that newer parts have not yet earned.

Thank you, Laura. I am so thrilled with this Meerchaum necklace! The color and arrangement of the beads compliment it beautifully. You have a very good eye for detail. I can only imagine what a wonderful time you have collecting such amazing pieces and working with them! I purchased this piece in honor of my own child who is in heaven. The detail of Our Lady with her Child Jesus is so carefully and perfectly carved. I will treasure it always, as its beauty brings me peace. I cannot thank you enough! Best wishes, Robyn

This was truly a work of art, a special statement piece, and exactly what I had hoped it would be. From the packaging--each individual piece carefully wrapped in the box--to the quality of the craftmanship was just a wow moment. I am so happy I clicked "add to cart" as I turned away a few times debating the purchase, but it kept calling my name. I cannot wait to buy the next piece! Thank you Laura for your creativity you share with us who appreciate the "one of a kind," artistic jewelry pieces.

Laura created a custom bracelet for me with some vintage pieces belonging to my late mother and grandmother. It’s beautiful and I am very happy with it. What was especially great about it though was ephedra kind and caring customer service. She was very responsive, sent me photos of the work in progress and all in all was just wonderful to work with!
