This listing is for one hand embroidered pendant necklace, a needlepainted portrait of a serene sleeping deer in the forest. There is something about deer that resonates with so many people-they’re so elegant and beautiful, there’s something both peaceful and fiercely proud of them-in a way, they represent nature itself. Wild, hard to capture and impossible to control, but peaceful, serene and incredibly beautiful as well. It’s hard to think of any animal that represents the woods more than a deer, which is why this beautiful sleeping fawn inspired this embroidery.
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 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.
This pendant is unique and will not be reproduced.
The pendant is 3.5 by 5 cm(1.4 by 2 inch) large. If you’d rather have this needlepainting as a pin 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!
