When these designs were originally created, beaded bags were all the rage.
It was the Flapper era... The Roaring Twenties.
No Thoroughly Modern Girl would have dreamed of going out on the town without bringing along a shimmering beaded bag to hold her personal items.
Her outfit just wouldn't be complete without it.
Even now... in the 21st Century... A beaded bag makes the perfect accessory when today's Thoroughly Modern Woman goes out for an evening's entertainment.
If you've ever tried to locate original beaded items from the 1920s & '30s, you know just how hard it can be to find bags and purses that are still intact...
