Tamlin & The Fall

Is it jewelry or a handbag? These miniaudieres from Tamlin & The Fall are certainly both. I'm absolutely beside myself over their beauty. Can't you just imagine carrying on of these in your palm? *sigh*
From the press kit:

Tamlin & The Fall's debut capsule collection, The Space Between, joins silver, leather, hammered-chain, and feathers into a trio of sculptural clutches for the edgy, sensuous woman.

Crafted to last a hundred years and designed to endure a thousand seasons, this quintessential trilogy is distilled from nature’s most enduring forms: the egg, the crystal and the shell. The egg has a dimensional fissure that cracks open to reveal an alligator-lined interior. The crystal is a sculptural gem mined to fit in your palm. The shell boldly embraces the hand like the guard on a fencing sabre. The interpretation of these shapes emerges as a group of palm-sized couture objects, each made with over a pound of precious metal. Timeless in form, function, and matter, the minaudieres speak a refreshingly modern language.

So beautiful but for me not at all functional with so many necessities to carry on my person. It would make one fancy pill box though!
