Another Tiny Beaded Handbag

Whoops! It's been a lot longer than I expected it to be since my last post. I've had a surge of non-miniature related energy, and the dollhouse projects went on the back burner. The good thing is that I got a lot done in real life. In the past week I've planted flowers, hauled rocks, re-organized cupboards, cooked enough to fill the freezer, and even got a head start on Christmas presents.

 When I left off, I mentioned that I was working on a black and gold beaded evening clutch. I did manage to finish the clutch during my mini-break. I freehanded the design (as usual), and  somehow managed to miss the fact that I'd drawn a big "M" until I was almost done with the beading.
I did experiment with a different style of clasp for this particular bag. I usually use a tiny Swarovski crystal and brass finding, but I couldn't decide what color crystal to use with the black and gold. I substituted a larger brass finding instead, and really like the result! I still plan to use the crystal clasps for most of my beaded handbags, but I love having another option when the crystals don't look right.


  1. Hello Eliza,
    They are just wonderful. the new clasp is a great alternative and looks wonderful.
    big hug,

  2. They're beautiful, Eliza! Just so very precious!

  3. Hi Eliza! Everybody likes variety and so does you mini Gal! Having the alternate clasp is very nice and it looks great with the black and gold beading! This is a bag for the little black dress that every miniature lady should own! Very Breakfast at Tiffanys!
