Anyone know where I might find them? It's urgent - a friend fell in love with this bag and I need to make one for her birthday. Thanks SO MUCH!!!!
Welcome to the forum.
Very hard to tell what the beads are, 4mm glass pearls or a round clear bead with an AB finish. If you can give us a hint as to exactly what you are looking for I am sure you will find an answer.

Thank you for your response! I'm actually looking for the whole assembly - what I assume are flat-back crystals and the metal pieces that they're sitting on. I'd like the metal parts to be at least 11mm. I'm new to all this - are those beadcaps? The metal part I mean?
These are filigree flower connectors with rhinestones. They are put together with jump rings.
Objectsandelements have some flower connectors in an antique silver called Baby's Breath filigree flower. The center has a place for a small flatback to be placed. If you like them, you could call them to see what size of flatback would fit the center.

The purse looks to be Vintage. Good luck.
Really nice looking purse! It looks like it's going to take a lot of work putting all of those together!! Good luck!!

I don't think it would be difficult, if you kept the size down. The filigree is just connected with jump rings with lots of chain at the top and bottom. Something you could do while watching a long movie. What it appears to me more than anything else is if you can find the parts, even if you keep it small like an evening bag the cost will be prohibitive, unless cost is not a factor.
What you might do is just make it a very tiny accessory bag, more for looks, maybe a little money and a lipstick. Lock the big girl purse in the glove compartment in case you need a driver's license, etc.
Good luck. Being creative and artistic is always fun.

I think a small clutch would be really cute!! Correct me if I'm wrong, a larger bag may get really heavy by the end of the project. Post a pic when your done so we can see what it looks like!!
I have never seen such a unique & gorgeous bag
