Personal Statement

I am passionate about creating beautiful, colourful things from silk. Having loved my time working with silks at a bespoke handmade lampshade company in Brighton, I decided to branch out on my own. Starting with just a bag of small material scraps that were being discarded I was inspired to 'recycle' them to create one-off items using the shapes and colours of the individual fabric pieces themselves as a design starting point.

Using hand embroidery, beadwork and crotchet, I embellish many of the pieces I make, and now I also handweave small pieces of my own silk fabric on a small table loom, which is great fun!

Everything I make is a one-off, never to be repeated, and totally exclusive to Diane Shaw Silks. I mainly sell items on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DianeShawSilkGifts), but also accept both private and trade commissions. I have also completed projects for the prestigious London embroidery company Hawthorne & Heaney to create bespoke pieces, including for London Fashion Week.
