Embroidered floral necklace



A few weeks ago, I showed you some floral embroidery that I was working on.  I'm happy to say that the piece is finished and now I just have to wait for spring to arrive in order to wear it!  Within the next few weeks I'll be posting a tutorial on Beading Arts which goes into more detail on the steps to make a necklace like this.  For now, I just wanted to share a few shots with you.

You did a beautiful job with the dimensional embroidery, Cyndi. I'd forgotten how lovely 3D embroidery is. I hope this is one of those lost arts that is coming back.

I have a small collection of 3D embroidered linen handkerchiefs made by my mother and sisters and me. What a treasure they are.

Thank you, Eileen! I'm so used to thinking about embroidery in terms of beads now that this was a stretch for me...but a very enjoyable one :-) I'd love to see your handkerchiefs sometime if you ever feel like photographing them. I'll bet your other readers would love to see them too!

Ahhh, but then you'd have to see how badly it clashes with my hair ;-)
