I just found this frikken awesome website last night (as in, craftster.com), and your super amazingly wonderfully beautiful purse inspired me to get off me bum and make one...I also dropped a couple of the steps and made it a little easier: I only cut out one template for the top band per side, ironed on some interfacing, and sewed it directly onto the pleated part (before sewing the sides together).  I then sewed the sides together and cut the lining out to size.  When all was done there was only one visible stitch on the lining.  geddit?  got it.  good...
   I used happy sunny tiki barkcloth for the outside and this nice shiny golden fabric for the lining, and used magnetic snaps for the closure instead, and sewed a button on that I'm not too sure of...I think I might change it.

HEEY! These are nifty. I like 'em lots. I have a bunch of stamps i've made into earrings... though i'm curious to know how you made these into pendants?
did you just take copper/silver stripy thingy (its like half adhesive and used for stained glass) and solder the outside and the hook on? or did you do something else?

and is the stamp in between two pieces of clear something? or is it just glued on?

kk. But very cool!  Grin
1. yes, and 2. it's between two pieces of glass microscope slide...

i just joined today, I've been observing for a week...  You kids rock...
(hopefully i wont post this completely wrong)

I found a giant bag of old and ( sometimes crusty ) stamps at a thrift store.   
I knew they would make great jewelry, but it's has taken me a year to figure it out...

at last.  Success...
(and I got to learn how to solder)
