Straw and felt hats for all occasions or for everyday pleasure. Jewellery inspired by textiles in silver and vintage materials.
My hats are witty and beautifully crafted. I work to commission, making hats and headdresses that are the crowning glory for a special day. The jewellery is inspired by textiles; I use wood, silver, vintage knitting needles and silver thimbles, to make unique earrings necklaces, bracelets and brooches. I trained at Goldsmiths, London College of Fashion and the Royal College of Art. My felt and hats have been exhibited worldwide, from Pallant House, Chichester to America, Japan and Kazakhstan. I worked for the global fashion house Jean Muir, working closely with Miss Muir on each collection. The V&A museum acquired one of my hats for their fashion collection and I was also commissioned by the Worshipful Company of Feltmakers to make a hat for the Queen. My hats bring a smile, a sense of confidence and a feeling of joy to those who wear them. Sometimes a quietly eccentric hat, understated yet unique, simple yet complex - these are vintage hats for modern heads.
