This is called the "Victorian Panorama Purse" despite the scene of a chinese bridge & almond blossoms because its overall style strikes me as more Victorian. The netted fringe is done in the style of a chandelier. It contains seed beads, glass drops, fresh-water pearls, fire-polished rondelles, garnet briolettes, and rose quarts. The body of this draw-string purse measures approximately 5"x6". It is lined with a chocolate-colored Shantung dotted with charlottes on the inside edge.
This little treasure took approximately 4 - 6 months to actually create (not including planning stages) and is probably one of the most extensive and challenging projects I've designed! The bead fabric was made using circular herringbone and was inspired by a scene found in a book at the local library. This particular project has a special place in my heart! Enjoy!
