HISTORY OF THE ARTISAN CLUTCH

In 2009 while living in downtown Nashville, I created
a purse by sewing two vintage buttons to an art canvas.
I folded the purse and stitched the sides. There was no clasp or magnet to hold it closed and no lining on the inside. Just a raw, accidental, and explorative moment.

I carried the clutch to a few events, which sparked great interest in my immediate creative and fashionable village.
Thus, what is now known as the "artisan clutches" was born.
