This listing is for one hand embroidered brooch, a needlepainting of an Irish landscape. I’m staying in a rural area of county Galway in Ireland at the moment, and my first day here I walked through the fields, amazed by the stillness of the land. Endless flat fields, dotted with trees, sheep and horses, roads that keep going and going but no cars or people, and the only sound you hear is the wind. It’s peaceful, so quiet. I tried to capture some of that in this embroidery, for you to take with you when your life takes you to busier places.
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 15 hours of handwork. After the hand embroidery is finished, it is put into a silver coloured setting with a sheet of thick, quality plastic inbetween to protect the embroidery against the elements. It has a little clip on the back to pin it on your clothes, so it’s perfect for you to wear on your next travels!
The brooch will be packed sturdily, with a note detailing the inspiration and the story of the needlepainting. This pin is a carefully created piece of art, celebrating the beauty of nature.
This piece is unique and 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 pendant necklace, that is also possible-just put a note along with your order and I will convert it to a pendant with a necklace 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!
