I am proud to offer this one of a kind purse entirely handmade and designed by national award winning beader, Heidi Kummli of Colorado. Heidi specializes in designing her own jewelry which can be accessed from my links page. Heidi has expanded her work to include a few special purses. She is a talented perfectionist, designer artist.
 
This amazing purse features an antique bakelite frame with copper beaded trim all along the bottom edge of the frame.  The heavy vintage gold link carry chain is shoulder length.   
This contemporary purse, on red ultra suede, features an Indian maiden artfully framed with fancy, dimensional work featuring chrysocola stones, vintage medallion and beading. There are even beaded 'pinecones' on the lower design edge.
Trimmed in southwestern copper colored beaded fringe with turquoise metal dangles, which are brass with a patina finish, accented with hammered copper dangles and abalone bead dangles. 
 
The reverse features a doeskin pocket with long twisted fringe, all attached with bead work, embellished with stones and vintage medallion. The lining is soft, purple ultra suede.
Detailing on this bag is superb.
This bag is a work of art that is, even now, a rare collector's item. It could be carried; however, an original work of art such as this should be displayed along with your other fine art.
