My Past Life Offering

This is the "Reticule" that I just finished. It feels good to get that out of my system and get back to normal purses. This "Reticule" has three different types of lace. I dyed the lace and now the colors all have a relationship to each other. It is lined with orange Taffeta. Like all "Reticules", it has a pull closer. One side of the "Reticule" I have adorned with Biwako (FreshWater) Pearls and the other side is adorned with Coral. I think that I have kept the feeling of "Reticules". And the funny part about it is that it does not feel new but decades old.

This is such a beautiful "reticule". I love the colors. Funny how it seems old even though it is new. You have succeeded in recreating this gem from a bygone era.

What are you planning next???

Fresh water pearls, coral and three kinds of hand dyed lace...sounds like items for a Princess! Magnificent Pat!

I can't wait to actually pick this one up and look at it, feel it and see how it works. It is like a plume of pastel parfait.
