Snakes were regularly regarded as guardians of the Underworld or messengers between the Upper and Lower worlds because they lived in cracks and holes in the ground. The Gorgons of Greek myth were snake-women (a common hybrid) whose gaze would turn flesh into stone, the most famous of them being Medusa. We made our snake less scary, in spite of its flashing jet black eyes, by having it slither through a field of rosy blooms.

This design is fitted with a 112cm removeable heavyweight coated iron chain for hands-free living.

Meticulously handmade

  • The centuries-old technique of beaded bags was given a style fillip and a (much-needed) shot-in-the arm when we married our love of vintage beaded bags with our undying passion for kitsch, camp and everything in-between when we launched our first Flamingo-A-Go-Go beaded envelope clutches into the market in 2014. The market loved it, including our competitors who became fans – we see everything, yes, EVERYTHING. (note to readers: imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery!).

    But we stayed true to our vision of creating conversation-piece bags that can express your mood, match your outfit or do both. So, click through to see what suits your attitude today, be it the timeless and traditional, or the wild and witty.
