Black Purse with Beaded Picots
Originally uploaded by txstitchermom.
Now, whereas the beaded clutch purse was soft-support, this one is stiff. The handle is very short, to be carried just over the wrist. You can easily see the little picots all around the edges; what you can't see as well (I have to work on my lighting, SORRY!!) is the beautifully beaded stem of roses and leaves on the flap of the purse. It is an exquisite example of beading.
