Fruit Reticules
Some trial, some error...

I went downtown in hopes of finding a purse frame for the pear, but most people have no idea what I'm talking about and the few who do only sell purses already made that I'd have to rip apart to get the frame from. I first found some really beautiful one of a kind purses with perfect frames but I wasn't willing to spend $160 to rip it apart to make my little pear. ugh.

I finally found a cheap beaded purse with a rounded decorative frame that will work. That was $20; much better. :-) And it had a beaded handle that I like. I picked one in brown so the handle will still look appropriate as the stem. The only snag now is that it's about 5" across when the bukram base I made was only 6" across (I was hoping to find a 4" max frame) so now I have to make a bigger base or there won't be enough difference to give me a good pear shape. Off to dig through my rose bowl vases for a better size...

Um, I know this post hasn't been looked at in AGES, but I found something that might be of interest in your (possibly abandoned) quest for a pear reticule. It's amazing the things that suddenly come to mind when one is browsing the internet....

About 2/3 - 3/4 of the way down the page - a lovely accordion hinge purse clasp. It's 1 inch across when closed, but stretches to 4 inches when fully opened.
