Fab Finds Friday: Silk Brocade Clutch by Puck513

Ever since my years of travel abroad to China and Taiwan for work, I have had an affinity towards items made with embroidered silk brocade.  The textures and vibrancy of the fabrics are enchanting.

One day on Etsy, I came across the lovely items by Puck513.  Her shop features wraps and clutches made with lovely fabrics.  It was hard to choose which one to get, because I wanted them all!  I finally ended up selecting the red and gold Chrysanthemum clutch.

When it arrived, I was so excited to just hold it and admire the wonderful craftsmanship.  When I placed it on my shelf to admire from afar, I realized the motif was closely related to a vintage painting I have as well as a necklace I was working on…no wonder I was particularly drawn to this bag.

If you are in need of a lovely wrap or clutch for a special event or just because, I suggest you check out Puck513…you won’t regret it!  You can also find my floral necklace for sale in my Etsy shop Luster!  Many of the photos will feature the lovely clutch as a backdrop.

I really do love it, and as you can see from my photo, it has found a nice home on one of my display shelves so that I can enjoy it even when I am not using it! I am still drooling over a few others you have for sale in your shop....
