Bead Fest 7: July 2013

Posted on

Our next theme has been voted on and the theme is:

Victorian Beaded Purse/Handbag ~ Chosen by Chris

Purse Collage

Here is more info, links and history to the purse.

“I think it would be fun to do a ‘Victorian Beaded Purse/Handbag’ theme. I think beading outside of jewelry would be a nice change.

Here is some fantastic inspiration:

Here you will find a wealth of info regarding the ‘history and beginnings of a purse:
http://www3.hants.gov.uk/dress-and-textiles/bags-collection.htm

“In the Victorian period an extraordinary variety of types of bag appeared, in fabrics which matched or co-ordinated with different outfits, and which suited different fashionable styles of dress, and demonstrated different needlework and knitting skills. In the 1830s and 1840s flat square or circular bags were quite literally canvases for a range of decorative designs in woolwork and chenille, beadwork and ribbonwork, and ladies’ magazines described how to make them.”

DEADLINE: JULY 31, 2013

To be listed on your Etsy page and then linked in the Etsy forum. If it is not in the Etsy forum by midnight (‘Mountain Time’ Zone), July 31st, it WILL NOT be included in the collage. NO exceptions.
