mini purse pendant

Here is one example of the mini-purses I do. And yes they open, so you can put a folded up $20. inside!!! All beaded using peyote stitch. Some I put crystals at the bottom. I vary each purse I do to keep they a touch unique. The little clasp at the top is crystal.
With these is do use a non toxic varnish over the beads as I really use mine and want to make sure the thread keeps strong for usage.
The neck piece is knotted on the little jump rings and then varnished so the knots won't come undone. I only use standard black for the cord, but anyone buying these can change the cord if they choose.
