Friday Inspiration - The Tiny Embroidery of Eira Teufel
I used to embroider a lot - I still love picking up a needle and laying the different colored threads out in front of me, but somehow I don't seem to get to it very often. And when I see amazing embroidery like that of Russian embroidery artist Svetlana of Eira Teufel, I'm inspired to start a new project!
Svetlana creates beautifully intricate pieces that range from small to impossibly tiny - pendants, brooches, motifs for sewing onto clothing, cufflinks, .... it's truly fascinating.
The German embroidery site Pumora has an interesting and recent interview with her that I highly recommend reading - you can find it here. And after you get hooked on her work and try to decide whether or not you want to buy a giant magnifying glass and create your own tiny works, you can look at her Etsy store here. I know I'm looking at those fish brooches!
Happy Creating! Deborah
