Judith Leiber’s Wavy Curve Crystal Clutch
While browsing through Judith Leiber’s collection of Austrian crystal covered miniatures, purses and bags I stumbled upon this delicious sorbet colored handheld boxy shaped evening bag. This beautiful clutch features hand glued Austrian crystals neatly arranged all over the body, with a push down closure, and a detachable chain strap.
The History: The inspiration behind the Judith Leiber’s crystal evening bags sparked when Mrs. Leiber ordered a gift by mail, but by the time she received the present (a polished metal box) it had scratches all over the body. So what’s an aspiring handbag designer to do? Mrs. Leiber whipped out her craft box and creatively covered the entire box with gorgeous crystals. 40 years the same techniques are still being used.
