If you love the colors of deep purple, ruby, warm rose, powder blue, and about 25 other colors I won't name....this is the purse for you. Not only very VERY pretty but also very VERY feminine and highly functional!
NOTE....Double Click on each picture and it will give you a close-up shot of the details and work that went into this baby.
Again we are chuckful of details and again this is my purse design. This is an OOAK original Journey Bag that I constructed using a vintage victorian needlepoint top and then I went nuts beading the outer edges of the roses and greenery with crystals, glass beads, and vintage beads, it is very cool. Far upper left corner is a beautiful unique OOAK brooch I handcrafted using tulles, satin, and silks, to form the roses and leaves and embellished the corsage with peacock feathers, plumes, antique french ribbon and Svar Crystals (stick pin is not removable) but the brooch is, you can place it on a wrist cuff, lapel, headband, or just leave it...whatever floats your boat!
The shoulder strap is an antique textile that I heavily ebroidered making it look like a plaid, and lined with a midnight blue satin. Journey Bag is edged with a great combo of 2 different trimmings. (front and backside)1st an earthy mossy shiney green satin tassel fringe and on that lies a lustrous vibrant purple fringe. Gusset is a striped blue and cream heavy ticking. The back of the purse is a newer upholstery textile. Rich buttery cream background , floral print..pictures show true colors. Closure is a 9" vintage metal powder blue zipper. The top (where the zipper is) is an antique piece of fabric that was taken off an antique chair 1800"s. (Same as the strap) The material is a what I would describe as a warm rose, has a burgandy satin stripe that runs through it. To make it a lil more funky and atuned to the style of the purse, I zig zagged some beautiful bright colors of thread going the opposite way of stripe, making it look more as a plaid.(kind of like the strap, but not as much ...2 different looks. Totally Rocks!
Inside bag is lined with a vintage (old fashion upholstery fabric that you would see on your Aunt Ediths metal porch swing,) colors are cream, browns, greens...(I have pictures...will send) has 1 leather microfiber lined with a satin pocket big enough for cell phone.
I have lots of pictures, so please don't hesitate to ask!!!
(For those of you that saw this purse earlier..yes It had the mink strap...one day I went to pick it up and noticed that some of the hair was coming off...so I removed it and now you know the rest of the story)

Top of shoulder strap to bottom of purse 32"
