Jewelled handbag

My, this was a challenge. The material is actually completely covered in tiny black and bronze beads interspersed with sapphire, ruby and emerald-looking stones. Hmm. I'll have to play around with that!

think you conquered the challenage. Love the "jewels" not overdone which I would think would be difficult.

Wow! This little jeweled bag is a jewel itself. What a great job on this extremely challenging subject! You managed to keep it painterly yet still indicate all the beautifully intricate work. Very nice job on the gold clasp and handle as well.

You did a great job on this bag, Kim. With all the jewels I understand why it was a challenge. You definitely pulled it off. :-)

Great piece Kim - check out Karen Appleton if you get a chance. I believe she did a series of purses you might like.
