This listing is for one hand embroidered pendant necklace, a needlepainted portrait showing a face with cherry blossoms on a blood red background. I wanted to create a portrait with an intense gaze, taking the beauty and elegance of cherry blossoms and turning it into something a bit unsettling, a bit creepy even, but still beautiful. What’s the story behind that gaze, who is the person staring at you through the blossoms? That’s for your imagination..and for everyone else who’ll be staring at your pendant as you’re wearing it 😉
The needlepainting embroidery is done completely by hand, with very fine filament silk threads, each thread about three times as fine as one strand of regular embroidery thead, and on sturdy cotton fabric. The silk is embroidered on in layers to give it depth, and the process of embroidering costs about 20 hours of handwork. After the hand embroidery is finished, it is put into a silver coloured setting with a sheet of thick, quality plastic in between to protect the embroidery against the elements. It comes with a long chain necklace, so it’s all ready for you to wear!
The pendant will be packed sturdily, with a note detailing the inspiration and the story of the needlepainting. This pendant is a carefully created piece of art, celebrating the beauty of nature.
There is only one of this pendant, it will not be reproduced.
The pin is 3.5 by 5 cm(1.4 by 2 inch) large. If you’d rather have this needlepainting as a brooch, that is also possible-just put a note along with your order and I will convert it to a brooch at no extra charge and no extra processing time. The pin is the same dimensions as the pendant.
This piece will be shipped out within 1-3 business days. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message!
