This listing is for one hand embroidered needlepainting of a snowy winter landscape in Tampere, Finland made into a pendant; like a small piece of art for you to wear wherever your travels lead you to. The needlepainting is inspired by a morning in the forest in Tampere, Finland. It was just after new year, and the snow had started to fall and didn't seem to plan on stopping anytime soon. When it did, it was time to go outside and enjoy the fresh snow and the precious light outside in nature!
It was -22, which made for an interesting experience, as I've never had the feeling of frozen nose hair before. We brought a little bottle of Finnish booze in our pockets to warm us up when it got too cold, and walked through the beautiful forests, completely blanketed by snow. You couldn't tell anymore what was forest ground, path or lake. The whole world seemed to be sleeping, except for the sturdy trees which silently stood among the snow, waiting for warmer times. Much like the Finns themselves..
The needlepainting embroidery is done completely by hand, with very fine filament silk threads, each thread about three times as fine as one strand of regular embroidery thead, and on sturdy cotton fabric. The silk is embroidered on in layers to give it depth, and the process of embroidering costs about 8 hours of handwork.
After the hand embroidery is finished, it is put into a silver coloured setting with a sheet of thick, quality plastic inbetween to protect the embroidery against the elements. It comes with the long silver necklace you see on the model, so you can wear it right away.
The pendant necklace will be packed sturdily in a pretty box, with a certificate detailing the inspiration and the story of the necklace. This pendant is a carefully created piece of art, celebrating the beauty of nature.
The pendant is 3.5 by 5 cm(1.4 by 2 inch) large. If you'd rather have this needlepainting as a pendant to hang on a necklace, that is also possible-just put a note along with your order and I will convert it to a brooch at no extra charge and no extra processing time. The pin is the same dimensions as the pendant.
