Lets enter the world of craft- Wire handbags made by Smt. Manjula

In my last post I have written about the most talented lady , Late .Smt Manjula. She is not with us  today, but her works in arts and crafts will be always inspirational to art and craft lovers.
In this post sharing about wire handbags  made by her. Few years back making handbags from colorful wires was popular craft. Even I remember my mother making wire handbag. But most of the handbags I have seen have common designs. I was amazed to see the different kinds of handbags made by Smt. Manjula.
Here are some I can share:
 Cute Pink and White combination with little rose as lock.
Here is the closer view of the weaving, and if you know about wire weaving you can observe that the weaving is reversed. Hats off to her creativity!
Here are some more:
Blue and White combination with double straps
 Handbag with Black and Green combination
 This is something different, flower shape, I guess this was made using crochet.
This is a shopping bag and the weaving is in Pentagon shape.
This is made with beads, and it has a small outer pocket also.
 The outer pocket has the bead hangings .
Each piece is unique and very innovative.  The color combination, weaving and pattern, everything is perfect.
This shows Smt. Manjula's interest in craft.
This journey into the world of arts and crafts doesn't end here, I will write about about the crochet works by Late. Smt. Manjla , in my next post.

Until then,
Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
