This listing is for one hand embroidered brooch, a needlepainting of a sleeping face with purple leaves. I wanted to create a peaceful and very human image, a portrait of someone holding secrets close inside, enjoying their own dreams in a quiet serenity. It’s a soft, introvert portrait, creating a moment of quiet to carry with you wherever you go. This brooch is slightly larger than my regular jewelry to really make it a statement piece.
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 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 ready for you to wear!
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 life and nature.
This piece is unique and will not be reproduced.
The pin is 4.0 by 5.5 cm large, which is slightly larger than my other jewelry. Because of that, I can’t turn it into a pendant(because I don’t have any pendant settings of this size).
This piece will be shipped out within 1-3 business days. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message!
