A Burt Watson Original

My husband Burt makes the most beautiful  beaded leather handbags.  We went to an art show and he found these faux bakelite handles.  I couldn't wait to see what he was going to create with them.  The handles are so outstanding that he decided he didn't want to compete with them by adding beads, instead he put his creative efforts into the stitching.   

You can see more of this unique work in Burt's Etsy Shop.  


  1. Oh, very good!
    Thank you for your comment.

  2. What a wonderful creative team! Fabulous purse and a complement to the handles.

  3. Oh I've just checked out some of the bags Burt makes. They are wonderful (but I'm a bag lover). Love the Tute Tote one (it's just that every bag like that I can't hold on too because the handles are too short for my lenght). And the Magenta Bead one is great too.

    Love the fact you are both so very creative.
