Unique, collectible pieces of artwork that can be worn as a brooch or displayed on your wall, mantel, dressing table.
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 of these Picasso brooches is a one-off. The base fabric is cotton and I have stitched with cotton, linen, acrylic, rayon, wool and silk embroidery threads sourced from independent and vintage sellers. Dimensions: 8cm x 6cm.
We have 1 available with a mauve background, fabric backing and safety pin attachment.
We also have 1 available with a green background, set in a punched hole black oxidised silver setting with hanging loop brooch pin. The silver setting is handmade by a jeweller from 925 sterling silver.
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.
