Biography

Barbara Munns Vintage Collection

I make handmade Fashion Accessories using collected and found materials sometimes vintage sometimes not. I collect beautiful natural fabrics, lace, ribbons, beads and jewellery, gathering the pieces together to make new items that speak about their past. The feeling of Vintage Collection, flower corsages to handmade garters and vintage teacup candles, all have a historical or vintage focus while remaining contemporary. I care about the ecology of where my materials come from and if they have had a previous life that is only to be appreciated. I use vintage, upcycled and new materials.

I will show Fashion Accessories lots made from upcycled materials and they are all handmade in Bristol. I have ranges of corsages that cover silk and leather flowers and fantasy. Beautiful handmade headpieces, hair slides and clips in a range of styles. Evocative Vintage teacup candles hand poured into china from bygone eras. Decorative handmade cards using print industry offcuts.

Lastly my unique vintage and contemporary wedding garters individually made from a sumptuous collection of fabrics including many Liberty Prints, lace and collectables. Holding true to ‘something borrowed something blue, something new’ I love the whole idea of making something that has a whole tradition attached to such a seemingly whimsical thing. History tells us that it represents a far greater value. Commissions and made to order colour matching undertaken.

I welcome the opportunity to sell my products at Fairs and into Shops. I offer an amazing range of handmade enamel jewellery, corsages & fashion accessories and all are handmade in Bristol.
