I love this and have gotten too many positive comments:)Read More
I returned my purse. I thought it would be larger just on the mere fact that it was metal. who would take the time to make such a small bag with such detail to serve no function other than to open a close. the stones on the bag were of poor quality they looked drab like rocks I could find at the local nursery to set up an aquarium. I could probably fit a tube of lipstick and a key in this bag. good luck.Read More
This was one of my impulse buys that didn't turn out too well. Not worth the price, but I didn't send it back because I can always find a use for things like this. Right now I am using it for my pin money.Read More
This purse is so adorable on the picture and I wantd it so badly. However it is silver and was tarnished so badly my hands were black from handling it. Tt was totally black. It was bent and wouldn't close and missing a stone. So disappointed. I really wanted it. It did not look anything like the picture. Ovrstock should never have sent it out.Read More
Black dye either from lining or outside metal stained my hands and counter top, and would have ruined any garment I may have worn. Disappointed is an understatement. Extremely poor overall quality. WHAT A MISTAKE! Returned it immediately.Read More
I have been looking at this on Overstock for a couple of months. I finally decided to go ahead and order the round one. I am so glad I did! It's much nicer than I expected. I love unique things and being very petite myself, I love very small hand bags. I will carry it with jeans mostly, but it can definately go dressy as well. My phone fits in it along with keys, ID and a credit card or two. Mine has sort of muted jewel tone colors and the metal is pewter color. It also came with extra stones and a cloth storage bag. Very well done.Read More
It's beautiful bag but way too small. From the computer, it looks much bigger than the actual size.Read More
I love the bag but my strap keeps breaking. The quality is a little iffy.Read More
Questions & Answers
How to Care for Amber Jewelry
Amber is an attractive but delicate ornament. Popular for its deep golden color and natural patterns, amber decorates both antique and modern jewelry, from beaded necklaces to rings and earrings. Handmade amber jewelry from places like Poland, Thailand and India lends an eclectic look to any outfit. This jewelry requires special care, as amber is soft and can be easily damaged by even mild chemicals. If exposed to sudden changes in temperature, amber can crack or even break. For these reasons, care should be taken to protect amber jewelry when wearing, cleaning and storing it. With proper care, your beautiful jewelry will last a lifetime.
Popular Types of Quilts
Out of all the bedding made, quilts may be the most diverse. Quilts are produced in all kinds of colors, patterns, sizes, styles and types. If you're looking for a quilt but don't know where to start, take a look at the popular types of quilts below to learn more about this beautiful kind of bedding. Amish quilts: These beautiful quilts reflect the Amish way of living and feature solid colors, deep hues, geometric patterns and very little embellishment. Amish quilts contain the highest quality of construction and stitching, and, sometimes, the wonderful stitch patterns (scrolls, feathers) contrast with the simple backgrounds of their quilts. Applique quilts: These quilts use a French needlework technique where fabric pieces are sewn onto another piece of material to create a design. Applique is used extensively in the quilting process and is not to be confused with patchwork. Patchwork pieces are joined together; applique is sewn on top of the whole piece. Baltimore album quilts: Baltimore album quilts came from Maryland in the early 1800s. Each block in the design of these quilts is appliqued differently, often in ornate floral patterns. Bangladeshi quilts: These quilts are made with layers of Saree cloth. Saree cloth is silk cloth used by women of India to wrap and fold around the body as a garment. The cloth is usually 40 to 60 inches wide by 6 yards long. These quilts are used as bedding or as decorative pieces. Bargello quilts: Bargello quilts are created with offset squares in an up-and-down geometric "V" pattern. The small squares of different fabrics and the colorful designs make these quilts true works of art. Hawaiian quilts: Hawaiian quilts are not pieced, and they usually showcase a large, symmetrical applique in the center of the quilt. Most often the background is white or another solid color. Patchwork quilts: Patchwork quilts are constructed of many small pieces of fabric which are put together in an improvised or irregular pattern. This is a well-known quilt style, and examples of historical patchwork quilts are found in many museums. Ralli quilts: Ralli quilts, sometimes known as rilli quilts, are traditional quilts made in India or Pakistan. There is an abundance of embroidery as well as applique on the patchwork patterns. Star quilts: Star quilts are created with a large star shape, or several star shapes, dominating the pattern. Wedding ring quilts: Wedding ring quilts are crafted in a design of interlocking rings. This pattern goes far back in history: in the fourth century it was used to decorate drinking cups in Rome. Wedding ring quilts are highly popular and make wonderful wedding gifts. If you're looking for a gift to please an engaged couple, you can't go wrong with a wedding quilt. Bedding always makes a significant gift for the bride and groom, and a quilt with coordinating Egyptian cotton sheets can be even better. View All Quilts Back to Guides Directory View All Quilts
