Miser's Purse ~ A New Design
I just wanted to show you that I finished my Miser's Purse last night. I kept the beads simple, but I used multifaceted crystals to add some sparkle. I made a basic tassel because I thought is was the most in keeping with the purses of this style from the late 19th century.
I wish you could see it in person. It's hard to capture long pieces like this in good light. The clouds aren't helping me much this week either. Sometimes you just can't seem to get away from shadows.
Anyway, I'm kind of torn about whether or not to write a pattern for this. I like it, but then I'm kind of into this whole vintage thing right now. The question is, would anyone else like it enough to want to make one of their own?
It could be finished differently and of course it could be in any color or made with all sorts of fibers. I just don't know about this one. Should I or shouldn't I?
