Lydia was born on February 25. She is a Pisces. Lydia was crafted from taupe Thai silk accented with pheasant feathers and teal Thai silk piping. She proudly sports two decorative metal buttons plated in 24kt gold. Her lining is a rich teal Thai silk, making her beautiful on both the inside and out. Lydia enjoys the finer things in life. She is loyal and can keep a secret.
I actually hand picked the silk used to make Lydia while on a trip to Thailand three years ago. (my how time flies!) Both pieces used to make this bag came from the Jim Thompson Silk factory warehouse which in "Barb's World" is a little piece of heaven! It is a three story building in Bangkok with hundreds of rolls of the most gorgeous silk fabrics. My only regret is that I didn't buy more!

Let's hear a big cheer for Bernice! She was born on February 23 making her a Pisces. She is a woman of few words but knows how to make her point heard! Perhaps she could be YOUR new best friend!
Bernice is the latest in my Diva line of Sasaki Bags. She is made from an icy blue Thai silk. She has one exterior pocket on her backside, accented with custom black dupioni silk piping. On the front of Bernice, I have layered black and white polka dot guinea feathers for a striking entrance! Above the feathers is a panel of blue silk accented with two antiqued gold tone buttons and a row of black silk piping.
Manufactured faux leather handles add to this bags high-end appearance.
My momma always said it is important how pretty a girl is on the inside so not to disappoint momma, she can proudly show off her interior. I added a touch of whimsy by lining Bernice with black and white polka dot cotton fabric. There are two interior pockets which are accented with the blue thai silk piping.
Bernice has a magnetic snap closure. She is a wristlet. These 13" handles will not fit over your shoulder. She is 10" tall and 6" wide.

This wristlet sports a little hardware to enhance the whole "goth" look. It is made from black poplin which is such a crisp fabric to work with!
