I was watching a video on facebook that showed a cygnet (i.e. a baby swan) that was caught in a fence. As someone tried to help the poor little thing, papa swan was going into attack mode! Luckily, the rescuer managed to free the cygnet without getting his eyes pecked out. The funny thing is that the video actually reminded me of something from my childhood. Yep, a swan at the zoo tried to bite my rear as I walked with my mom over a little bridge, which happened to be right next to the swan’s nest! There is no question that swans can be rather vicious when protecting their offspring. Nevertheless, they are also very beautiful birds. It is no wonder they are the subject of literature, art, and now… handbags. Introducing the Judith Leiber Crystal Swan Minaudiere Clutch!
Judith Leiber never fails when it comes to gorgeous and intricate pieces. Her jeweled clutches look like they belong in a museum. In fact, some of them actually ARE displayed in museums! I personally love this latest piece because there is nothing more elegant in the bird world than a swan. The Judith Leiber Crystal Swan Minaudiere Clutch also comes in white, but I absolutely adore the black version. Black swans are actually native to Australia, but they are probably my favorite. It is such a delight to see one depicted by this designer!
