Great Expectations Book clutch
Expect to turn heads with this classy Dickens book clutch! Great Expectations is one of the world's greatest classics.
This book clutch is part of my upcycled range - which means everything has been recycled to create a one-of-a-kind book clutch. The clutch features an original Great Expectations soft cover ( which has been bound to a hard cover to give it extra support) that has been matched with a a gold and bronze-toned glomesh evening clutch. The clutch features a classy gold pop clasp and has a zip pocket inside - perfect for you to store all your coins. It also has two other compartments for storing cash, cards or receipts. The clutch also features a bronze-toned shoulder chain (measuring 45cms in length). You also have the option of slipping the chain inside the clutch, so you can easily mix up your look and carry with you instead.
Care and Instructions:
To preserve the life of your unique book clutch, ensure that you avoid any water, spills or damp surfaces. The book cover has been laminated – but treat your clutch in the same way that you would a beloved and treasured book.
About Bookanook Studio:
Your book clutch has been handmade with love from my studio on the Central Coast of NSW. All books are sourced from second hand stores and pre-loved shops – so no new or unread books are damaged in the process. Yay to that! Clutches (unless specified in the description above) are also sourced from pre-loved stores and upcycled – part of the art of making a book clutch involves carefully selecting clutches and purses that match the colour, theme and dimensions of the book. Please note: The upcycled purses/clutches and books may have minor flaws or imperfections consistent with their age, but this will not detract from their unique and beautiful, handmade look. If this is the case, this will be clearly stated in the description above.
Manuscripts of books are reused for art projects, book sculptures and scrap booking, so nothing goes to waste. My business philosophy is to recycle and reuse – and to ultimately transform unloved books into wearable pieces of art for book nerds to enjoy. I hope you enjoy your book clutch and get as much satisfaction from showing it off as I do making them.
Yours in Books,
