Coral Reef Hand Embroidered Sterling Silver Necklet
Stand out from the crowd with this one of a kind hand embroidered statement adornment that would look fantastic with that little black dress or to dress up a plain white t-shirt, it'll never look out of place.
This is a one off design that is handmade, totally unique and inspired by my fascination with the beauty of coral reef. Each bead, sequin and thread is individually sewn by hand which builds up a sumptuous and intricate design.
The design process started with my experience of learning to scuba dive in the Caribbean Ocean and seeing the beauty of the world under the sea. Researching, drawing and designing throughout my final project of my Master of Arts in Contemporary Embroidery has led to creating "The Coral Collection".
The pendant took approximately 30 hours to sew and is stitched onto a base of 100% merino wool felt. The embroidery comprises of hundreds of tiny glass beads, sequins, goldwork copper purls, glass crystals and hot pink Swarovski pearls and has 3d effect corals. The pendant is backed using a beautifully soft grey kid leather and finished using a Hallmarked Sterling Silver Necklet.
Each piece is totally unique as I use a needle and thread like others use a paintbrush, drawing directly onto the fabric, letting the colours and materials guide me to build up beautiful surfaces reminiscent of the textures, colours and shapes of the coral reef.
