About Appendage

Lampshades by Lush Design

I would like to introduce you to Appendage.
Appendage is a shop and gallery selling products hand-made by British makers. Accessories for the individual and the home. We concentrate on colour and surface decoration. Both make a strong statement when translated into different mediums, including ceramics, felt, glass, jewellery, mosaic, paper and textiles.
Some of our makers are well known in craft circles and others make small ranges exclusively for us. All our products are individual and innovative. A wide range of items and a broad price range mean it’s possible to buy a special present or have a spontaneous treat.

It would be great if you could come and visit us.

Appendage opened 25 years ago... I can't believe it! It was when I first moved to Brighton from London where I worked as a fashion designer and lecturer after studying fashion at the Royal College of Art. Over the years I have become more involved in craft although I think my fashion background is still apparent in my choices.

As you can imagine, over the years we've had a fantastic range of work from many different designers and according to our customers we still do! Some makers we've stocked for several years. Their ranges change so there is always a sense of something new. Each season we find new makers and the emphasis changes throughout the year, winter... texture, colour, summer... colour, print. Our jewellery ranges are extensive and made from many materials... felt, leather, fabric, resin, glass,  again colour is important. We are not promoting a lifestyle - we want to encourage our customers to be individual in their homes and on their person. Lots of customers come and tell us how much positive comment their purchases provoke.
