Description

I made this necklace for my brother’s girlfriend for her 30th birthday. I stitched it by hand, over a number of evenings. The stitches used are bullion knots, chain stitches, and blanket stitches. The threads were from a 1980s embroidery kit that my mother had never finished, and the felt was hand-dyed to match the thread colours.

I bought a cheap necklace at an accessories store and stitched the embroidered disks together using jump rings.

Linen, felt, embroidery threads, chain

      Thanks Martin! I must say needlework, and hand-crafts have always fascinated me. I’ll have a look at the website!

      I think she did Mary, at least, she was wearing it the following day with matching yellow sandals when I visited! Thanks for your comments.
