Winged Soul Love Clutch

In between this glorious, deeply tooled leather wingspan is a white quartz cabochon of considerable size, representing the soul in love.
Flying through even the heaviest of moments with relative ease, this is a soul in good company.

On the back, a soaring heart; an excellent traveling companion if there ever was one.

Deep cuts, muscles tired from beveling.... over fifty rivets firmly holding the lining.

And ohhhhh the lining: edges hand-frayed which is becoming a signature for my clutches, the lining is a truly vintage fabric featuring swirls of exuberant colors and Hawaii's energy coursing through its cotton veins.

Nearly 13 inches long, 5 inches tall and 2 inches wide: this will hold everything you need for a night out or a lunch with the ladies.

Warning: you will receive complements and they will be many.

In the Leather Shop later today.

Too funny.... one of the few things I went over to consider buying for Lori... and poof it's gone.

I once told her at Xmas when I bought her a purse, this shows I really love you because you KNOW I think you have too many but you would love it anyway. And she did.

p.s. if it was shoes, she would know I've lost all my senses.
