The first popsicle stick purse is an Avatar inspired purse. The top is embellished with a tree of life I created out of copper wire and Aventurine stones. The dots surrounding the tree are Gooey Glo spots for the point of light glows in the movie. The corners and jute macramed over copper handle are decorated with glass leaves and large beads for the folliage. And I made a long braid out black leather strings to represent their hair.
Then there is my hand painted with Acrylics Kokopelli purse. I made a copper medicine wheel for the closure on front.
The pink one is my seaside purse. Decorated with shells, wood beads and Jute.
And the green one is my St. Patricks day purse. The top is hand painted clover that is outlined in copper wire formed like clover. The closure is a four leaf clover made out of copper and Malachite and cast in a clear resin.
I'll do a tutorial with pictures soon....because I used to use thumb tacks to make the top hinge but I prefer small screws.
