I've been making portraits of inspirational artists and turning them into wearable pieces of art. This embroidered brooch of David Bowie's alter ego Ziggy Stardust is entirely handmade... mimicking his brush strokes with thread. It's available with a fabric backing or set in a selection of handmade 925 silver frames.
The fabric option has a closed back with a covered safety pin. The silver frame options have steel pins and an open back to reveal the stitches. Choose from a punched and stitched silver frame in a shiny silver or oxidised finish, or a solid frame as pictured.
Each brooch measures approximately 6cm x 8cm x 8mm deep. Yours will be made as close to the one pictured here as possible. There may be very small variations due to each being handmade, but that makes yours unique!
Arrives beautifully wrapped in a presentation box with a care card.
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.
