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.
