RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research is base on how art therapy can be processed and showed by accessories pieces. Expressive art therapy is divided into four stages which are the scribble stage, pre-schematic stage, schematic stage, and realism stage. The study presents people’s emotional status by accessories pieces beginning with their sick, unhealthy, and negative emotions, and gently turn into better, more active, and healthier moods. The variation of outcomes and color changes in the accessories pieces connote the changing period of people’s mind and attitudes by expressive art therapy. People's choosing for accessories also affected by their emotion and spiritual changes.

CHALLENGE:
The bag handle is custom made by 3D modeling then resin casting techniques. The designer did a lot of research and experiment on casting to get the right color flow as she likes the best. In addition, though the bag structure looks easy, the leather is very thick which is about 3mm and hard to handle. The designer did a lot of hand sewing techniques and treatment on the leather to make the shape realizable.
