Designer Comments

The inspiration for this lovely purse were my nieces who happen to love mermaids. This one has a brunette mermaid on the outside and the inside, in honor of my 9 year old niece who recently decided she would color her hair that color.

This beautiful small purse was made from what used to be a sturdy and well constructed wooden cigar box. It has been lovingly painted, embellished and decorated with decoupaged images of mermaids, shells, stickers, textured paper, fibers, beads, glitter, etc. It is perfect for that young girl or woman who happens to love mermaids!

The inside is lined in a complementary felt fabric and trimmed with ribbon and embellishments.

The handle was made especially to go with this purse, with whimsical beads and colored wire.

The inside lid of the purse is also decorated with a decoupaged image of a different mermaid, and embellished with dimensional stickers.

The back of the purse is painted in an ombre effect in several shades of turquoise blue and teal with white accents emulating waves done in white iridescent glitter.
