Jeweled Holiday Handbag

by Liz Juneau.
(Savannah, Georgia USA)

I used a bit of jewelry making to revamp this satin handbag that I purchased from a thrift market.



The color of the fabric was a dull yellow but it had a nice shape and included a chain to wear over the shoulder or tuck inside to use as a clutch.

I painted the fabric with metallic paint then adorned it with a vintage crystal drop and another vintage jewelry piece.

I am anxious to use it for the upcoming holidays.
