Drawing from my fine art background, I treat the thread as though it were paint. The layers are built up to create texture, tone and depth in the facial features.
Each piece is hand-stitched using a combination of silk, wool, cotton, acrylic and linen embroidery threads sourced from independent and vintage sellers.
Here are 3 David Hockney brooches - each one is unique.
The base fabric is cotton. Dimensions: 8cm x 6cm.
We have 1 available with a fabric backing and safety pin attachment.
We also have 1 available set in a solid silver frame with a pink stitched background. The silver setting is handmade by a jeweller from 925 sterling silver with a hanging loop brooch pin.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
