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.
