This listing is for one hand embroidered needlepainting of a forest in Norway, made into a pin brooche; like a small piece of art for you to wear wherever your travels lead you to. The needlepainting is inspired by a walk through the Finnish forest in Austmarka, in the east of Norway. Although the forest is in Norway, it was planted about 800 years ago by Finns who settled there, and even today the people and the culture in this specific area of Norway are a bit different from the rest and they show their Finnish roots.
The forest itself starts quiet and dark when you first leave the village and walk up to the hill, as portrayed here, but quickly turns into many colours and full of life and light. This first moment however feels magical, the moment you leave the world of people for a little while and walk up, up the hill into the forest..Wherever in the world, this feeling of entering a forest is the same, and gives the nature lover a thrill every time..what kind of adventures will we experience this time?
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 has a little clip on the back to pin it on your clothes, so it's perfect for you to wear on your next travels!
The brooch will be packed sturdily in a pretty box, with a certificate detailing the inspiration and the story of the needlepainting. This pin is a carefully created piece of art, celebrating the beauty of nature.
The pin is 3.5 by 5 cm(1.4 by 2 inch) large. If you'd rather have this needlepainting as a pendant necklace, that is also possible-just put a note along with your order and I will convert it to a pendant with a necklace at no extra charge and no extra processing time. The pin is the same dimensions as the pendant.
