A group of British accessory makers emerged in the 1990s, in the long tradition of the artist-craftsman. These include Emily Jo Gibbs, who creates delicate purses and bags in metals and silks. Gibbs describes herself as 'a craftsperson because I design through making'. This drawstring purse is supported by a silver ring from which fuchsia-shaped metal tassels hang.
