shopping: hand painted python

On June 28, 2014 by theseventhsphinx

I stumbled across this wonderful Etsy shop of handmade and hand painted leather accessories that specializes in python designs, linmade, and, after a few months of deliberation, recently had a bit of a field day.

Welcome to my alley.

Here are the pieces I picked out, which will have to have proper showings once they arrive. I’ve been wanting an oversized envelope-style clutch for a while, and found a couple of pleasing candidates, this simple fold-over design being one.

The primary goal was finding a clean shape with interesting—preferably organic—texture and, above all, a stunning color.* Love this dark, muted teal.

*A few weeks later I completed the quest in a second and completely different way, which will also show you soon.

The second bag I got was a small zippered pouch. This lavender-tinged brown/white/turquoise combination is irresistible to me. Though there are a lot of other nice ones in the shop, the other color combos didn’t stand a chance.

I was going to stop at this but the shop owner, Lina, responded so nicely to a query about shipping (she is based in Indonesia) that I decided to get one of her makeup pouches, fairly squat and wide, and just the capacious-yet-structured style I like for a makeup bag.

And a belt…because actually I’ve been looking for a python belt like this for months now!

Here are a few other items that caught my eye, to give you a better sense of the shop and the great use of color she has:
