'At midnight, in the month of June,
I stand beneath the mystic moon.
An opiate vapor, dewy, dim,
Exhales from out her golden rim...'
Edgar Allan Poe, 'The sleeper'
That verse put me in a mood and somehow inspired me to create this purse. Solemn gloom of deep waters and smooth fog of the night. This piece turned out to be very beautifully shaped and has spectacular colors in it, too.
The gorgeous kiss clasp frame, taffeta lining inside, also goes together with the water lily brooch.
Approximate measurements: 24 cm tall x 35 cm wide (the widest part of the bottom) -- 9" tall x 13,7" wide, without the frame. The diameter of the brooch is approx. 16 cm -- 6,3".
