These gorgeous necklaces feature a free motion embroidered panel mounted into a coloured metal back. A stunning gift for yourself or a friend.
This handcrafted necklace features a free motion appliquéd liberty fabric cat on a pale turquoise wool felt background, with embroidered flowers. The back is a coloured metal mount attached to a pale grey waxed cotton cord with a silver coloured clasp.
I start the process by choosing a liberty fabric to match the backing fabric. The cat is hand drawn and cut out before being free motion appliquéd onto the fabric.
The next stage is to add grass and flowers to compliment the colours of the fabrics. This is done by free motion machine embroidery, think using the sewing machine needle as a pencil and you will have an idea of the process. It is all done by eye, no computer programmes involved, so everyone produced is unique.
The finished panel is cut to size and glued into the pendant.
The finished necklace is approximately 16 inches long including the clasp, the pendant is 5cm x 4cm, and comes wrapped in tissue.
