You'll find that this original, one-of-a-kind embroidery hoop art is comprised of hundreds of french knots. The thread in the center starts as a very dark turquoise, and gradually progresses to a rich teal, a little bit of cornflower blue, then to aqua, and all the way down to a pale sky blue on the outside. This abstract piece was created as a fun experiment to see how smoothly I could progress the knots from dark to light.
This was a true labor of love - it took over 4 hours of sewing and quite a few needle stabs to the finger to finish it :) It's completely handmade and unique. I used 12 different hues of teal to achieve the look of this gradient.
The hoop measures 4" (10.16 cm) and the back is left uncovered.
This piece is ready to hang by the hoop screw, or it can be propped on a flat surface; just be sure to hang it out of direct sunlight to avoid fading. For shipping, this piece will be carefully wrapped and sent in a protective bubble envelope to ensure it arrives to you safely.
