keeping embroidery close to my heart
The other day on Annakata, she posted pictures of some beautiful lockets. Some she made, some were made by others. But as soon as I saw them I knew that I would be making one for myself. So I ordered some lockets from BrassGoldBeads, then picked up some chain at JoAnn (don't you just love the peacock-colored one?).
The embroideries are just free-stitched, and glued in place with a bit of E6000 adhesive, and instead of using jump rings, I attached the lockets with embroidery floss. It's softer, and adds a bit of color.
This larger one I made for my sister. She's big on big pendants. And leaves and trees.
These are seriously easy to make, and they are a really fun way to wear your love of embroidery. I still have three empty lockets left, and I can't wait to try more teeny designs!
