Violette and Rose clutch bags
I have designed a collection of wedding clutch bags, silk bridal clutches and bridesmaids purses which are ideal for the wedding day and at the evening reception, as well as floral clutches, evening bags and Harris Tweed bags for special occasions. You can order any of the bag and purse designs pictured via my online Etsy shop. You can also decide whether to personalise your chosen item by having an embroidered monogram, name, date or message added as a special memento of the occasion.
Once your order has been received, your bag or purse will be handmade by me at my studio in Scotland.
The bags are made using the traditional bespoke needle-craft skills I have learnt and used in my career as a Costume Designer/Maker in the film industry, and for clients such as English National Ballet, Scottish Ballet and the Royal Opera House (you can read more about my background on the About page)
My 2023 collection is currently only available to order online, although I do occasionally exhibit pieces for sale in Gallery exhibitions. For example, my 'ballet' purses were selected for inclusion in the 'Gifted' exhibition of contemporary Scottish crafts at the National Museum of Scotland
