Lets start our studio tour, questions and then let hear from the designer.
1. NOW TELL US ABOUT YOUR WORK AS A DESIGNER?
I love the design process of my jewelry and handbags which is slightly different categories but one process that's the same it's both all handmade in the heart of Crown Heights Brooklyn, New York. I specialize in one-of-a-kind classic techniques as well as the less traditional. These include, wire wrapping, hammering, knitting, knotting, crocheting, braiding and sewing by hand and by machine. My design concept is to remain simple and elegant. “I feel the strongest statements are made with the fewest words. I believe the same can be said for my one-of-a-kind women's jewelry, handbag and fashion accessories custom designs made in america" my home town Brooklyn.
2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ITEM FROM THE "WHERE BROOKLYN MEET THE EDGE OF FASHION" ACCESSORIES COLLECTION?
I have to tell you when it comes to my custom made signature jewelry piece like “Lucky Six” necklace seen on fashionistas and fashion-forward women TV personalities Shaun Robinson of Access Hollywood, celebrity make-up artist Mally Roncal of MallyBeauty.Com, Lori Stokes of ABC Eye Witness News. It's delicate, feminine and very charming. My ABSOLUTE favorite!!! When it comes to my rebellious and deconstructed handbags with a bit of glam with a classic touch, I have to say Bella leather clutch zipper bag as seen on the (right below).

4.WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK AND WHAT TYPES OF MATERIALS DO YOU LIKE TO WORK WITH THE BEST?
I am inspired by nature. I take great care in choosing my materials; considering the process of creating jewelry or a bags, it is similar to a sculptor that prepares for the next piece of art - it's my craft. My choices of stones, which include amethyst, geode, and onyx, are my favorite. I carefully select and hand-pick, touching and feeling each piece texture and selecting them based on their natural shapes. I don’t polish or mold the stones, I choose to preserve their natural shape and like to hang them from delicate 14K gold filled and sterling silver chains, which gives them amazing versatility. "MY CONCEPT IS TO REMAIN SIMPLE AND ELEGANT. I FEEL THE STRONGEST STATEMENTS ARE MADE WITH THE FEWEST WORDS. I BELIEVE THE SAME CAN BE SAID FOR MY DESIGNS.”
Barbara Campbell Accessories started in 2007 primarily as a jewelry design company. A couple of years ago I was trying to find a purse to carry my phone and iPad in. There was nothing interesting on the market, so I designed one for myself. I loved it!. I usually browse shops in the garment district in NYC looking for materials for my designs. Just about that time I discovered an outlet for leather skins. They were beautiful. I bought a few bundles, went home and started designing clutches, and then larger bags. Now I have a small custom made collection of both small purses for phones and credit cards, clutches for fashion, and larger handbags for travel.
I use both leather and non-leather and some plastics. I find the colorful plastics give great contrast to the leather and non-leather pieces. I shop at small fabric stores in Brooklyn for my linings, and have found some wonderful pieces that way. My target audience are fashion forward professional women of all ages, and young fashionistas who wants an edge on fashion.

My custom made handbag line got started primarily because I love handbags and wanted some new ones for myself! Then I decided that I also loved designing the bags, but I started designing handbags at the age of 16 and the rest is history.
I make custom made unique handbags with an edge of all sizes and for all purposes. Some are functional, and many are both functional and fashionable. The great thing about bags is that they serve a purpose and creates a great fashion statement at any time of the day. I designed one of a kind amazing unique bags so I don't want to forget so I take notes plus one day I did not do a pattern for one of my bag and everybody that saw the bag wanted that same bag I was showing. It took me a long time to figure out what I designed so now… it's important to take notes, in trying to recreate that was a nightmare. So Now I always take note, I make a pattern and I take a picture of all step in making a Barbara Campbell Accessories handbag.

I actually think that my use of colorful plastics and fabric with leather of all sorts is one of my great achievements. The results were even better than I expected when I designed it in my head. The contrast of both color and material, as well as the functionality I have built into these handbags, makes it a great statement piece. I have always tried to marry fashion and function in my designs, and these bags do that 100%!
|Brooklyn Handbag Designer, Bag Maker Barbara Campbell says: When I complete a flat accessories pattern design |
for my handbags and clutches in my design studio workshop in Crown Heights, Brooklyn;
I can't wait to try it on a yard of plain organic locally independently made fabric to see the results.
After sewing up my custom made sample handbag I then hand cut a small piece of real leather to complete my last cut using the same bag pattern method. I am always looking forward to wearing my latest handbag out on the town and when I do,
I get lots of compliments and feedback on my latest creations, which helps me to test the quality and like-ability factor of my handbag design and the hand-selected fabric, I'll be cutting and working with to hand-stitch an amazing handbag for you to love and want to wear daily in your fashion style life for women and gentlemen different style available!
