No one in the whole world will ever have a purse like this one. Olivia is my traditional hand bag, an open purse with handles, no shoulder strap, no lid. This is definitely an evening piece, a statement! it will hold your phone, glasses, compact, lipstick, cigarettes and lighter if you are a smoker and a small wallet. But if you are as lucky as I am where I don't smoke and I don't need to carry a wallet for my man holds all my affairs this purse is a piece everyone looks at with envy.

I sewed 12 coils together, measuring 1.75" for each side, and lined each individual circle on the inside with bookbinding paper. the sides comprise of two square coils measuring 2.5" also sewn together in place and the base of the purse is made of a row of 2.5" long paper tubes and lined with same book binding fabric to give it strength and shape.

My purses/clutches are totally functional and sturdy, my paper merchandise has been caught in the rain on two separate occasions and they came though it unscathed. I stand behind my product and offer a one year guarantee to fix or replace your item.

The process of coiling is a long one, first I cut paper into strips, twirl each strip into a straw like shape, flatten them and then coil each of them into different size coil. This is an extremely time consuming process, but the end result is priceless and inspiring.

Thank you for visiting my e-store and hope you come back to see what new items I will be putting on. Please tell your friends and family of this incredibly artistic shop.
