Spikey: The cactus purse was made from clay and baked in an oven
Need to retain your liquid assets? Then you may need a cactus purse.
The striking handbag is just one of several clay-based accessories designed to look like exotic flowers.
They cost up to £1,000 but maker Kathleen Dustin is confident they will compliment any bag-mad lady's wardrobe.
'Most people are amazed at them - they are for the woman who is very confident in her own style,' she said.
The designer, from New Hampshire, in the US, hopes they will encourage wearers to engage with nature.
