The peacock is a land bird, known for his beautiful presentation feathers. I thought it would be interesting to put a male representation on a very feminine design. The peacock represents the balance or masculine and feminine energy. As you see, its feathers create a distiguishable pattern, just as the honeycomb and mudcloth patterns do on the front of this shimmering handbag.
A string of beads including rose quartz, avenurine, and a cowrie shell complete this look.
