If you love unique, hand beaded, One Of A Kind, Statement Purse, you have arrived at the right shop at the right time! Up for your consideration I have a very special purse that is full of details. Handcrafted from an antique cut piled velvet tapestry pillow top into a shoulder bag purse. This Edwardian scene is 2 lovers floating abroad, she's gazing up at the stars and he's gazing into her big dreamy eyes.
I heavily beaded the couple, boat, water, sky with crystals, glass beads, pearls, and antique leaded bugle beads, (her hair is highlighted with metalic threads that intertwine with each other and is beaded on top of that) each bead is individually hand sewn on with a double strand of heavy thread, bigger beads ( where I could) I doubled that. (really made this purse stout so it can survive another 100 yrs.) The colors of this bag are so very pretty...Bold cranberry, fiery burnt orange, deep blues, and warm browns to name a few. There are 2 types of vintage trims that I used on the edges, that are on both sides of the purse (front and back) The gusset is ruched with this awesome floral vintage rayon faille fabric..very cool, has a very industrial look to it.l.
This lil number is lined with a deep champayne rayon faille, 2 pockets, one for your cell and the other is larger, finished inside off with french gimp. Oh yeah , has the sweetest vintage tassel E_V_E_R that hangs on left shoulder strap that I salvaged from an old curtain tie back. I embellished it with french gimp, strands of vintage looking sequences, and hid a small bell underneath it all...tinkle, tinkle.
I used a vintage metal zipper for closure. Opening 8" long.
Shoulder strap can either go across the body or hang off your shoulder.

Measurements are as follows for this rather large, deep, and ridiculously COOL Journey Bag:

Top of strap to bottom of purse is 35"

Length of shoulder strap (from side to side ) 40"

Depth of gusset top is 1 1/2 ' flares to 2 1/2 " on bottom

Width across top is 11" (does not include fringe or tassels)

Width across bottom is15" (does not include fringe or tassels)

Top of purse to bottom is 14" (not including shoulder strap)
