Silk Velvet Chokers

Hand made silk velvet chokers hand sewn with flower dyed silk(Organic) by myself. This is stitched onto the velvet using small sashiko stitches in a contrasting colour.

The velvet choker fastens with an elastic circle and has antique metal buttons x 2. Also can have Mother of Pearl.

The colours are amazing and of course silk velvet is wonderfully soft against the skin.

I also make wrist cuffs to match which can be worn over a cardigan for effect.

The choker costs £72.00 and cuffs are £85.00 with 3 buttons.

Please do contact me for further information or to place an order.

Angel Art Dolls

Angel Art dolls for Christmas.

I make a small amount of these dolls each, so order one while available.

My Dolls are hand drawn with ink onto linen. The dresses are made from Antique handkerchiefs, laces and silks. The wings are strips of silks hand sewn onto felt and tied with silk onto the doll.

They cost £125.oo Including postage and come beautifully boxed with a certificate and of course numbered.

I am also very happy to make these for Brides looking for something to treasure after the Wedding as they can be dressed in a similar fashion to the Bride and personalised.

My Dolls are all unique and hand sewn. They are a delight to see and treasure forever.

Interior Design by A Little Bird Said

Design is not about Illusions of grandeur or exorbitant costs, it is the simple blocks upon which to build our own style. We are all collectors, we collect life, but our lives are all so different that we often have difficulty in fitting everything together, after all we do not want to live in rooms full of boxes and paraphernalia that leaves no space for us, the collectors.

We are continually driven by society to gain more, the bombardment of stuff an overload of the senses, magazines, tablets, adverts, fashion all vying for our attention, confusing our simple needs.

Where there is poverty there is simplicity. In Japan the beauty is in the simplicity of arrangement, less is more. Museums are full of collections they are of course the keepers of artefacts, but note they can only display a few at a time using designated cabinets and spaces. We should note this.

Our homes are as Individual as we are.
