Handpainted Metallic Leather Clutch


Sometimes I can’t find the colour or finish of leather, so I like to make my own custom finishes. This clutch has metallic blues and golds over a blue base. It’s a veg tan leather and I have applied a wax finish for additional protection. It changes colours, and almost personality in different lights and at different angles.

Bags are designed and made in my MEW Designs Studio (also known as a laboratory) in Brisbane Australia.

It’s best to do a small patch test (the base is a great place) before applying any leather products or cleaners to make sure it won’t impact the colour. The leather will soften over time, and you can add a sealant to keep the colour or let the leather weather and age into a new finish.

This clutch design is named after Nettie Stevens, born in 1861 she began her career as a teacher having limited choices. She was determined to study biology and saved until she could afford to attend university at the age of 35. Her research career began when she was 39, and she went on to discovered the different combinations of X and Y chromosomes were responsible for sex determination, one of the key discoveries in the field of genetics. Sadly she passed away at 50, only 9 years after completing her Ph.D., however she published approximately 40 papers in that short time.
