This copper and black ensemble actually comprises three elements. The purse comes with matching earrings of the same beading as is found on the bag's other side, and the Thai silk stole has been hand-trimmed with matching black and copper glass beading in a swag motif. The bag itself is crocheted of black lurex and copper lurex metallic yarns (from San Sebastian, Spain) throughout. The top is boxed over and closes with a button-through vintage antique pleated-fabric button. The handle measures about fourteen inches and comprises all the yarns of the bag thickly hand corded. Its most interesting feature is the dyed feather trim, which comes from an exclusive milinery trim shop in Sloan Square, London.

Size: Approximately eight inches wide by two inches wide by six and a half inches high, exclusive of handle.

Price: $400, inclusive
