A Hazy Shade Of Winter - OOAK Wrist Bag
This gorgeous wrist bag is the winner of the EtsyBeadWeavers (EBW) Team’s December challenge “Simon & Garfunkel - The Songs of Inspiration”.
I was inspired to create this bag by the Simon & Garfunkel song “A Hazy Shade of Winter”.
The bag was beadembroidered around one of LisaPetersArts gorgeous and original hexagonal One-of-a-Kind (OOAK) ceramic cabochons, 6 lovely grey Czech glass cabs (in the photos due to the reflections they look yellow but they are a smokey grey), and 3 beautiful grey Swarovski crystals all beadembroidered with Japanese seed bead in antique silver, antique gold/light bronze, ivory and grey/bronze metallic iris.
The back of the bag is navy/black genuine leather, and the interior of the bag is lined in beige Ultrasuede. The frame is an antique-gold/brass metal purse frame.
The wrist band/bag handle is a lovely rope crocheted with grey/bronze metallic iris Japanese cubes.
Width: 5” (c. 13 cm)
Height: 8 ½” (c. 21.5 cm)
Strap: 8” (c. 20.5 cm)
This is an incredible piece of OOAK wearable art, a little bag small enough for the evening and big enough to keep all your essential (mobile phone, keys, lipstick, credit cards and money).
