Antique Beaded Bags, Purses & Reticules

I love beaded bags and wish I knew how to knit or crochet to create them. I found this wonderful website that has a listing of beaded bags - both for sale and those in the site owner's private collection. Click on the title above to take you to the website where you can explore these little beauties. I know of only a few artists who currently produce these items: Julia Pretl has a CD on bead knitting, Carol Perrenoud has a video on bead crochet, and Kathryn White has beaded bags and kits for sale. Arhyonel Beadwork has a wonderful list of sources. To purchase victorian styled purses, go to Victoria's Jewelry Box. Have fun!
