Ever since I wrote about the Celestina Red Abalone Shell Clutch I have been captivated by this designers gorgeous and unique pieces. The tiny little evening bags are nothing short of being works of art. They are admittedly a little bit impractical in most cases, but they are so absolutely stunning it’s hard to resist not buying one (even if it would only be to look at!).
Recently I stumbled across this little jewel from Celestina. It’s called the Woven Silver Filigree Clutch. The body of this clutch is constructed of thin strips of sterling silver that have been woven together in a basket-like fashion. The front of the clutch features a gorgeous filigree centerpiece mounted on a wooden base. I love the overall shape of the clutch, like a delicate little pillow. And like most clutches by this designer, it comes complete with an adorable little mirror inside. The clutch opens up into two halves, sort of like a canister. This little beauty would certainly make a wonderful conversation piece, even if it spent most of its time sitting inside a glass case!
The Celestina Woven Silver Filigree Clutch measures 6″ x 5″ x 1″. It is composed of 75% sterling silver, 20% kamagong, and 5% filigree. Find it at Net-A-Porter, where it retails for $1,695.

Celestina Red Abalone Shell Clutch
Under the sea. Under the sea. Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter. Take it from me!
Wow! Doesn’t this beautiful clutch make you think of The Little Mermaid? Meet the Celestina Red Abalone Shell Clutch. And I have to say, it definitely looks like something you would find in Ariel’s closet. What does everyone think of this little beauty? Personally, I am in love with it. It’s small, dainty, and it looks like a little jewel. The perfect accent piece, simply combine it with your favorite little black dress. I’m sure everyone will be complimenting it and asking you who its designer is. In fact, I bet even Ursula would be envious!
The Celestina Red Abalone Shell Clutch is constructed of two natural shells that are hinged together. It has a copper frame and the clasp is accented with genuine amethyst stones. It’s just big enough to hold your essentials (keys, lip gloss, cash, etc). But get this, it comes with its own little mirror inside. The clutch retails for $880. Unfortunately, Net-A-Porter does not give size measurements for it. There is a note, however, that the size might vary slightly since natural shells are used.
