My mother gave me a handbag a few years ago when she visited us in Canada. I just loved it, it was copper with gun metal findings. Part of that lovely handbag broke and I decided to use the rings etc. to create "Thanks Evie". Everyone calls my mom Evie which is short for Yvonne. So Mommy I added a few more components ( wire, wire beads, semi-precious stones, copper beads, a tutquiose donut and chain) the rest is history.
