"I simply adore antique and unique vintage accessories, and I am crazy about my own collection of antique accessories that I have been compiling, sharing, and selling for the last 30 years. Three decades ago, I started selling my vintage and antique collections at the Bermondsey Antique market, held on Friday mornings.
In my collection and
shop I have fans from the 1860’s, 1880's parasols, beautiful gloves, reticules,
straw floral hats, purses, beaded bags, shoes, Georgian spectacles, tiaras,
combs and many, many more things that have all played a very important role in
influencing me in my work.
Sourcing the Best Design Components Available
I travel all over Europe, the USA, and here in England searching for the beautiful, artistic and unusual to create my unique vintage accessories. Embroidery, beading and ribbon work are all hand techniques I admire and practice. Antique and vintage buttons are incorporated into beautiful wired button jewellery collections, which I execute on hard gold plated metal woven necklaces and bracelets.
Occasionally I have a huge clear-out and sell my collections surplus to requirement, in an auction house called Roseberys. Many of my finds have ended up in museums and private collections as well.
Through my shop on line, I am able to share some of my special vintage finds and I hope you enjoy looking and adding to your collection from there."
