Between all the other projects I have been working on, I occasionally make a few purses. I love to make them. I like to branch out to other subjects that are not always centered around Native images.
I just finished my "Blue Buddha" - the healing Buddha purse today. It is made using 13/0 cut beads and 24 K gold beads on Imported Italian leather. The drops are crystal beads and Czech glass buddhas.
The back side of the purse - The Tibetan version of the eyes of Buddha.
I made this purse this summer but forgot to do a final photo of it. A clutch purse of beaded victorian era illustrated butterflies done in 13/0 cut beads and 24 k gold plated beads, on designer Italian leather.
This one I have posted before….but what the heck. The more the merrier. A Dio de los Muerto's bag done in 13/0 cuts and 24 k. Gold plaited beads on smoked brain tanned hide. the fringes are crystal beads and Czech glass skulls.
I really love making these purses. And there will be more to come. It all takes time - but I have a few locked in my brain yet waiting to come out.
