"Beautiful and Functional too!"

I used my Beaded Batik Black and Burgundy Cotton Shoulder Bag all last Summer and got complements every time! It is light, but very durable. Fits over my shoulder comfortably leaving my hands free for shopping. I love the handy zippered pocket inside for smaller items and my cell phone. It snaps shut so its contents are secure. The sewing and beading are of excellent quality. I am buying another one for a friend and maybe another design for myself.

her hand bags are so beautiful and such detail


Montana, USA

This bag is lovely! The fabric is beautiful and the beadwork is stunning. So intricate! I am replacing my old tote bag with this. Love the magnetic closure-very convenient. I found the overall color to be more brown than burgundy, but I still love it and can't wait to take my new bag to town.


Words cannot describe the exquisite workmanship that goes into these purses. I get distracted by the detail and skill every time I look at it, my most recent purchase is the red bag with the roosters...it also comes in blue (I'll order that next). Pictures do not do her work justice.
