I created this starfish design in punchneedle embroidery, which is akin to an ancient rug hooking technique on a smaller scale. I fused the weaver's cloth to a gorgeous deep cobalt blue reeded silk and then framed it in a 3 inch (7.6 cm) embroidery hoop that I stained.

Punch Needle or Needle Punch, is an ancient rug-hooking technique shrunken down onto a much smaller scale and uses a special twice-threaded hollow needle, embroidery floss and weaver's cloth. Each tiny loop is painstakingly and meticulously hand punched with love by me

As seen on ApartmentTherapy.com!

The deep blue cobalt reminds me of my very favorite color of sea glass. This would be a great addition to your beach house, or any house.

Punch needle is somewhat restricted in that it requires the use of only one type of material to create pieces on (weaver's cloth) - until now. Due to a fusing technique I am able to attach the weaver's cloth to any fabric I choose, in this case, a sumptuous, rich, yummy reeded silk. This silk is so stunning it almost glows, making this an heirloom quality piece you will treasure!

It would also be a lovely Christmas tree ornament!

Want a duo? It would look lovely paired with this sand dollar: http://www.etsy.com/listing/69745480/sand-dollar-punch-needle-embroidery

Hand dyed smbroidery floss is used in this design for depth.

*Made to order - Please allow 7 days*

Some elements may vary slightly depending upon availability of products needed to create the art work. Each one is hand drawn (no pattern) so please allow for subtle differences. I endeavor to stick as closely to original as possible but sometimes thread shades will vary slightly - as most are hand dyed.

A 3 inch (7.6 cm) circle of eco-felt made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles is attached to the back which will be initialed by me. :)

The Silk Star Fish arrives in pretty eco-friendly packaging and comes with a small brass nail for hanging.
