debra adelson: evening bags with removable brooches

Debra Adelson’s hand fabricated nickel silver handbags (with sterling silver lids) hold more than just your party-going lipstick.  Each functional evening bag boasts one of Adelson’s acrylic and silver brooches that can be removed to adorn you when it isn’t acting as a conversation piece on the bag itself.

Adelson hand carves the acrylic brooches and handbag handles.  The artist, who has a degree in jewelry design and metalsmithing from Tyler School of Art, also has a full line of acrylic jewelry and is a new exhibitor in this weekend’s Paradise City Arts Show in Philadelphia.  Worth a look-see if you are in the area.

  1. These bags/brooches are amazing! I really love the idea of being able to display a piece of jewelry even if not directly wearing it! Gorgeous work!
