I am a huge fan of Charlotte Olympia and really wanted to try making one of her signature Pandora clutches. This is a quick and easy high-fashion inspired project that requires just a few items to recreate.
If you are not familiar with Charlotte Olympia, you must do a Google search. The British luxury shoe and accessories brand makes some of the world's wittiest fashion pieces, each a masterful work of art.
This particular safety-pin adorned Punk Pandora perspex clutch is the inspiration for this project. It is the perfect mix of punk rock and sophisticated glamour.
Begin with a clear perspex clutch and fabric pouch. You can make yours from scratch or be like me and get a set from Etsy.
Decide on what colored safety pins you would like to use. They come in literally any color and finishing. I looked for the most vibrant colored gold ones I could find, each measuring in at about 7/8 inch long.
The pinning process requires some strategic thinking. You want to make sure that the pins are facing different directions so that the overall look is random. The closer the pins are to each other, the more dramatic the finished clutch will look.
And just like that, voila! This eye-catching clutch will be the perfect accessory for your next outing at a fraction of the cost. Definitely give it a try. Happy pinning!
