Tamlin & The Fall Miniaudieres, Handbags of the Day
Miniaudiere's have always been less handbag and more jewelry, a sort of half-ling of the accessory world. These creations by Tamlin & The Fall are no exception, practically taking the place of a beautiful bracelet or other adornment (quite literally in the case of the Shell design) when you carry them as a handbag.
All made to order and cast individually using over a pound of precious metal, shown above is the polished sterling silver version with other options including blackened (oxidized) sterling, matte (acid finished) sterling, or solid 18k polished gold. Linings come in matte black alligator or natural rattlesnake, tassels are hand-dyed feathers, and all miniaudieres come snuggled in a handmade wooden box lined in deerskin. Prices start at $19,800.
