The gorgeous Hannah modelling for me with my V&A millinery pieces.
Hobbits Vintage Creations is Me.. designing & creating luxurious, planet friendly accessories in my small home studio in Shropshire.
Hobbits began in 2011 after a rather varied career in many aspects of art & design. In addition to teaching in the arts I have had a successful interior business, painted murals and worked with soft furnishings. From childhood I have always been a creative!
My personal passion for accessories of all kinds range from a simple silk scarf to a classic vintage purse and wearing these pieces is part of my love for colour and textiles as well as connecting beautiful things, past & present.
The other side to my story is a continued drive to minimise waste and find another use for beautiful things that others throw away.. ( yes, I am the original Womble!!!) hence all Hobbits products are made from upcycled & repurposed materials...

'HOBBITS VINTAGE CREATIONS'
became the name that just captured everything !!
Vintage has lots of meanings for many of us these days- At 'Hobbits Vintage' it means original, vintage design inspiration & authentic repurposed original silks, lace and pieces of jewellery. Each piece is inspired by classic styles with a special twist of my own.
Products can either be 'made to order' or 'ready to wear' and are not only LOVED by brides, bridesmaids, grooms and families but by all those discerning accessory junkies like myself looking for something unique to enhance a party outfit, baby portrait, trip to the races, proms or birthdays.
The real life history behind the materials I use gives every accessory its own story, making it truly unique.
Carefully selected fabrics, colours & accents, authentic embellishments & original vintage jewellery, all combine together in my creations to produce a beautiful heirloom for you to add your own authentic story.
(ALSO send us your personal sentimental bits of fabrics or jewellery and I can work these lovingly into anything you choose!)
-All things are possible!-
For those of you who are truly looking for individual designs with that extra special touch, and who want to use materials that are eco conscious & gentle on our lovely planet, I am here to do just that!
Looking forward to creating for you
