Embroidery art is making a comeback. But it’s definitely not the cross-stitch patterns from your old home economics class. On the contrary, this is a creative new take on an ancient handicraft. You’ll see new materials, free-form designs and an edgier spin on those “Home Sweet Home” platitudes of yesteryear.
The elegant lines of a cat’s silhouette lend themselves perfectly to the art of handcrafted jewelry. I’ve featured 12 gifted artisans who interpreted the feline form into gorgeous cat necklaces for cat lovers.
So many different materials – from laser-cut walnut to mosaic glass to hammered copper – the creativity shines through each piece. I think there’s something to suit every modern cat lady!
This was one of my favorite curating trips so far. I probably could have kept going, but I’ll just have to do another jewelry blog in the future. Check out my Pinterest board for more.
