"Ode to Fabergé" clutch
I was inspired to create this bag by an antique cigarette case made by Fabergé symbolizing unbroken and everlasting love that was given as a gift to King Edward II in 1908 and then to Queen Mary in 1936. And, really, the inspiration was twofold. First, in the design itself, but second in the meticulousness and amount of fine detail.
The snake design is one simple, clean, continuous line around the bag. But look closely, and you'll see I've covered it in hundreds of minute Swarovski® crystals to form wonderfully sparkly scales. The crystaling process alone took about 25 hours, but seeing the end result glint and twinkle in the light makes it totally worthwhile. It feels like a fitting homage to a master jeweler's piece designed for royalty.

Like the style but not into snakes? I can create a custom sculpture for you. For instance, wouldn't this leather look great with a crystal-covered monogram? Email me at Laura@VivAndEdie.com for options.
