In the studio
Yay! I've now been able to add a lighter silver glitter to the letter colour choices on the monogram clutches. Until now the gold has been the most popular colour for regular clutches and ivory for the bridal clutches. The new silver shade will bring a nice, light and bright pop of sparkle! Now, I'm off to make one for myself - silver clutch with silver letters for a wedding I'm attending this weekend :)
A little visit from my Niece earlier prompted a bespoke bag made just for her. She loves pink and gold sparkles - so this colour scheme was perfect for her! She's always dancing, the ballerina icon on the front was the ideal finishing touch! I do love to create one-off bags, I never know exactly how it's going to turn out and playing with different fabrics and colours before I get started is always a fun process. A happy recipient always tops it off too!
I've been really pleased with the reaction to the personalised monogram clutches since they launched - they seem to have captured the imagination of my customers and many of them are being bought as gifts. We live in a throwaway world nowadays and I think that a lot of people are looking to step away from that - buy items that are more considered, that take skill to make, can be treasured for years and that don't have a detrimental effect on those making it. The fact that you can order a clutch to be handmade specially for you...
