Gemma Sangwine

We at Bristol Vintage love hair accessories and so we're delighted to welcome our latest confirmed exhibitor… Gemma Sangwine.


Gemma designs hair accessories with a vintage twist.


From her Costwolds studio she hand makes hairbands and fascinators from antique lace, beadwork, feathers and vintage costume jewellery. Each piece is absolutely unique, made with care for composition and colour.


Part of Gemma's current range is inspired by the carefree and decadent 1920’s, and includes flapper-style headbands made from restructured vintage necklaces, combined with diamante and marcasite jewellery and rosettes of antique lace. She also has 1950’s style fascinators made with a round or tear drop sinamay base covered in feathers, vintage costume jewellery and small net veils.


Gemma's bespoke service was launched in 2011, focusing on creating individual pieces for brides to be. Gemma works with you, your wedding theme, personal style and taste to design and make a unique hair piece for your special day.


Her studio is by appointment only, so come and meet Gemma and her beautiful pieces at our 2014 fair. If you can't wait till then, check our her website for inspiration or you can find her on Facebook and Twitter. And if you need a piece right now, her products are stocked at one of Bristol Vintage's favourite places, Cox & Baloney. (We're biased… our pieces are stocked there too!)
