WHAT IT IS: Victorian Style/1920s inspired Reticule
THE BACK STORY: This was made from an upcycled vintage cocktail jacket with Indian Sari beaded trim and vintage turquoise bracelets. My uncle brought these back from Afghanistan. (He befriended a jewelry vendor and purchased the items that weren’t selling in her shop so that I could upcycle them and use them in my art. All this…while he was working in the field and fixing helicopters! I know, right. So I am honored to utilize these pieces. They truly are one of a kind)
THE PARTICULARS: Base of the purse is snake skin print – upcycled 90s miniskirt. Super sassy.
