mac has been supporting artists for over 50 years and ensuring they are given opportunities for professional development. Every month we offer an emerging designer-maker the opportunity to take over one of our stalls during our market, allowing them to experience the process of selling first hand, promote their business and build up a customer base.
This month's emerging designer-maker will be Althea Hamilton, an accessories designer specialising in jewellery, silk ties, cufflinks and bespoke pieces. Her style is cosmopolitan with a fusion of ethnicity, bringing together diverse elements together to create unique and fashionable pieces.
Handcrafted in Birmingham, Jackie’s collection consists of limited edition and one of a kind functional stylish bags, hand dyed scarves and accessories that make ideal gifts for those looking for something unique and special. Her products are made using quality cottons, corduroy and vibrant African prints. Find out more
