Okay, so Im not sure if it should be called a purse, maybe a hand box? I dont know. Anyway, I made this the other week and finally had time to get the pictures up. Its all hand made from wood. The handle is out of skull beads, and then hand painted.
I have been on a wood box/purse building kick lately, and have a lot more done, but this is the only one Im showing you! HA!
Enjoy! (and yes, it is protected by ADT...) It is bigger than the picture looks, it is about 8 inches long.


Heres a bag I made a while back also, the patch was from my little pencil skirt, i didnt like it there so I put it here:


Heres the yellow one all finished up! I am stoked on how it turned out!
Front

Top (it was taken before the handle so you can see the sparrows)

Inside


And heres 1 more box/purse Im currently working on to sell, so they arent finished, but I thought Id show you the progress anyway:

(im adding 2 more mermaids probably today)

Sorry, theres a little sticker on the window that says "protected by" and the rest says ADT, its one of those security systems for homes...

But thanks for the compliment!

I love the old tattoo flash design thing you have going on. More crafts need to have a harder edge to them.

i don't know what pricing is like in the US so i can't be of much help, but they are hand made/painted - thinking about materials and labour $50 sounds perfectly reasonable!  what kind of lining is going on the inside of the boxes?
