BLUE ON BLUE

Blue on Blue is a retro Victorian-style drawstring purse whose drawstrings can be adjusted for wear at the wrist or from the shoulder. The inspiration for the whole came from the beaded-glass fringe, which was purchased in a trim and tassel shop in Amsterdam: it is a medium blue with a royal-blue repeating rose motif. The body of the bag, the base of which is oval, is crocheted in silklike medium-blue acetate and lurex (which was bought in San Sebastian, Spain, and matches the blue of the beading), with an open-work pattern to reveal the royal-blue satin lining.

Size: About six inches long, inside measurement.

Price: $125/ SOLD
