    Smile Celestina Woven Silver Filigree Clutch

    Celestina Woven Silver Filigree Clutch


    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.

    Wow, i really thought the picture of a pillow had be uploaded by mistake!!!!

    Very pretty, but not very practical or convenient looking. The clutch (except for the medallion) is a perfect replica of similar containers woven from straw, rattan or coir in southern India.
    I will try to upload a pic of one.

    ^^^ That's cool! I was wondering if there was something inspiring the design a bit.
    I know that their clutches are impractical. But when I look at them, they seem more like works of art rather than something with utilitarian value. Something fun to collect, but you really wouldn't use.

    Here are a couple of pictures of a rattan clutch.
    It is entirely handwoven by a local artisan. It also has a little coin pouch in green and pink rattan with it...i have no clue where i put it

    I thought it was a pillow! It is too pretty to use as a purse, I would have to use it as a decoration!

    That is actually really cute! And you're right, the overall shape (and the fact that it's woven) does make it look like this clutch.
