Empire Frame and Chain

(FEMCH-Antique Silver)

The Empire Frame in antique silver with its heavy matching chain and rhinestone studded closure is beautifully classic, elegant. Like the Empire style furniture for which it is named, the Empire purse frame has carved, curving lines and a solidity of form and construction that make it the perfect choice for both delicate evening bags and larger bags with vintage styling.

Carry the bag as a handbag with the chain closed inside, or wear it as a shoulder bag: either way, the Empire Frame elevates any bag - felted knitted fabric, woven fabric, or otherwise - to a level of refined sophistication.

Look at Additional Details for the exact dimensions of the frame and chain.

    Grace Kelly's Overnight Bag

    (170)

    Delivery Method:

    Some of you who love the 6-8-10 and W felted bags have asked for a bigger version with that same sense of style. My answer: This Bag!

    As I was designing, I thought of Hitchcock's Rear Window . . . I won't reveal the story, except to say that when the Grace Kelly character insists on staying over at Jimmy Stewart's place so she can look after him, she brings over a tiny overnight bag for a woman with such lovely outfits (you'd imagine she'd have a trunk delivered). But she is as practical as she is fashionable and pulls everything she needs out of the tiny overnight bag: stunning floor length shimmery sleeping gown, tooth brush, etc. . . . This is, of course, in the days of separate bedrooms or one foot on the floor fully clothed.

  • W with Box

    W Bag Pattern

    (155)

    Delivery Method:

    Who is W? Winsome. Wise. Worldly. We don't know her name, which makes her decidedly mysterious. Or perhaps insecure? No, impossible, with such a lovely frame.

    She's the perfect size to keep a big secret (or two little ones). Somehow she crosses the boundaries of class distinctions and attracts attention of the highest sort. At home in a Monte Carlo casino or an English manse, she is just as likely to be found at a bonfire or strolling the beach. What is her secret? She won't tell.

    6-8-10 Bag Pattern

    (156)

    Delivery Method:

    6 - 8 - 10 is a sleek, slim handbag perfect for the woman who travels light. This bag is elegant, understated, and stands on her own or is beautiful embellished with a cluster of small flowers or with one large life-like Hibiscus.

    In other words, this bag is the perfect special occasion bag: make a 6 for the bride and 8s for each of her attendants. Take a 10 to the wedding you are going to later this year. Make an 8 for your Mother-in-Law's birthday, and another for yourself for the birthday party in her honor. Bead a little red 6 with a grid of black beads for your Valentine's Day date. Make an 8 dazzling with Sparkle Rivets. Make a very interesting statement with a row of small Alien Skull Ornaments across the top, just under the line of sparkly beads that hold the frame in place . . .
