Welcome to Silk in Time!
My vision is to create or enhance beautiful and unique vintage or antique accessories that will contribute to the bride feeling very special on the big day. Whether handmade by myself or authentic vintage or antique pieces, I am committed to ensuring my products are as affordable as possible, as I believe the beauty and magic of vintage and antique textiles should continue to be loved and lived in our modern world.
I hope you will enjoy looking at my beautiful collections. Whether you are a bride planning a vintage wedding or simply looking for that 'something old' and extra special accessory to add to your bridal attire and something different to what you see available in high street stores. Or perhaps you are looking for a gift for a bride, something unique, a one-off that will complete her ensemble on her very special big day!

The inspiration for my own designs are the costumes and textiles of times gone by and the stories that come with every vintage or antique piece I restore or work with. I love learning about and working with lace particularly and the history, traditions and community that lie behind each piece and indeed live on to this day. I believe in maintaining their integrity as far as possible, staying true to the magic created by the original lace-maker and my pleasure is restoring and enhancing their former glory! I have a particular love for Irish Lace, both the needle laces and crochet lace and I am myself a student lacemaker and always looking to improve both my restoration and lace knowledge and skills.
If you are looking for something different and affordable, I hope you enjoy browsing my collections and please do email me if you have any queries about anything you see or if you wish to purchase a gift voucher for the bride to be. If you like the look of some of my hand-made pieces such as garters or ring pillows but the colours are not right for you, then you can let me know as I have a large selection of beautiful vintage and antique lace and silks from which you can choose your own bespoke fabrics and colours.
