This custom brooch was created as a gift for the customers mother who is an accomplished photographer. The embroidery was based off one of her photo’s, a beautiful picture of a cliff at sea. In the embroidery, I tried to capture the wild nature and atmosphere of a stormy day at sea while at the same time making the whole picture serene, with muted colors. Growing up near the sea, it reminded me of days on the stormy beach, the air smelling of cold and salt.
