This listing is for one hand embroidered needlepainting of an Icelandic landscape, made into a pin brooche; like a small piece of art for you to wear wherever your travels lead you to. The needlepainting shows the view from mount Esja, the mountain close to Reykjavik. Me and my friends hiked up the mountain at the end of our artist residency trip to Iceland, one last look at the beautiful country-and a promise to ourselves that we would be back.
The soft light and subtle colours and far stretching landscapes all signify Icelands rugged and unique landscape and characteristics to me-truly a place unique in the world. Wether you've been there and would like a reminder of it's beauty or if visiting Iceland is a life long dream of yours, this is a truly special piece to keep close to you.
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.
This piece will be shipped out within 1-3 business days. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message!
