Another gorgeous, one of a kind handmade bag from my ever-growing collection, this one is made of pristine vintage hand-done needlepoint embroidery accented by the most luscious antique and vintage trims and laces! For years I've seen many of the "shabby chic" type purses made from vintage materials, but never cared for the "shabby" part; am just not into the frayed, worn and tattered look....! So I decided to design my own very antique-inspired pieces that incorporate some of the exquisite laces, trims & materials in my never ending stash, with more elegant & clean details....you won't find any raw edges, worn-out straps or haphazardly tacked-on doilies here, only the fabulous vintage elements and fine-couture quality finishing that is the standard for all my creations ;-) This one is just the perfect gift for yourself or someone very lucky....SO romantic, lush and PINK!
NOTE: This is a one of a kind, READY MADE and READY TO SHIP bag. PLEASE BE SURE to read ALL of the description especially the measurements, before asking any questions---and do be absolutely positive this piece will match your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns.

I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....Am now translating that love to my own contemporary creations and using all the fine extraordinary antique and vintage materials, laces, trims, beads etc that I've collected for more than 30 years in these wonderful wearable pieces....along with the finest of hand sewing and one of a kind details. Everything I create is individually hand made solely by me and has the very best of my carefully hoarded private stash of superb old accents (I use ONLY vintage materials that are in pristine, freshly-cleaned condition---no deteriorating or obviously-worn pieces EVER) plus the finest of modern silks, cottons and wools that I can find.....resulting in a fabulous truly authentic vintage look piece. Impeccable professional workmanship and design are the hallmarks here!
This incredible piece was inspired by my love of Bohemian style, antique Victorian, Edwardian and 1920's fashion....This exquisite shoulder purse is a very large shoulder bag---I myself prefer oversized purses as I tend to carry around a lot of stuff....so this one is for those of you who also love big and fabulous! The front of the bag is a marvelous, creamy blush pink handmade needlepoint piece of roses accented by a sprinkling of glittering, aurora borealis glass rhinestones framed at the top by a wide band of the most exquisite hand-done antique embroidery (from my vast collection of antique embroidery trims) in intricate, luscious silver and blush pink designs---this has to be seen to be believed, it's the most breathtaking, HAND done work, not machine made---on deep ruby silk. I've bordered this with more antique/vintage trims in pink, metallic gold, antique ecru crochet, green silk and blush pink scalloped trim. Centered on this is a beautiful large medallion I created from brass filigree, pink and ruby glass jewels and my own handmade glass cameo featuring a vintage lady with roses (see closeups). This exquisite jeweled piece plus the delicate rhinestones scattered over the front give the bag such a subtle, breathtaking sparkle in the light....... The sides and bottom of the bag feature a wide ruffle of ecru antique lace and silken tassel trim in rose and green, and the bag is bound at the top edge with lush deep ruby red vintage binding. This bag is very deep and roomy, and fully lined with coordinating vintage Daisy Kingdom fabric in blush pink and burgundy in a lace pattern; it has an inside wide pocket for a cell phone or wallet. The back is made of rich heavy cut velvet in blush pink, and the shoulder strap, which is also made of the heavy velvet, is layered with antique trim in rose and ecru, coordinating perfectly with the colors of the purse. High quality antiqued-brass hardware includes sturdy and substantial full-swivel detachable clips on the strap, attached rings, and an inner magnetic clasp. Please let me know if you want the strap shortened or lengthened before shipment---right now it's 34" standard length not including the rings, but can be changed several inches either way.
Keep in mind this is a BIG shoulder bag---measurements of this beauty are as follows:
16" long by 16" wide, 1 3'4'" by approx 35" shoulder strap including the rings (can be worn either over the shoulder or cross-body) Be sure you check out my full photo album of this gorgeous piece on my Facebook page as I'll be posting about 17 photos (incl. closeups) there.
