Details

I created this tree using the punch needle embroidery technique, which is akin to ancient rug hooking on a smaller scale. Each tiny loop is painstakingly and meticulously hand punched with love by me. I used the finest hand dyed embroidery floss for depth in the design.

I made this pendant to feature a seahorse silhouette on sumptuous dark cobalt blue reeded silk.

I wore this design when I was featured on the Martha Stewart Show! (see the last picture in the listing - but please note I am not wearing the chain that comes with the piece in that photo - I am wearing a shorter 16 inch chain. This listing comes with an 18 inch chain.)

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 weavers cloth to any fabric I choose, in this case, a sumptuous, rich, yummy raw silk. This silk is so stunning it almost glows, making this an heirloom quality piece you will treasure!

The setting is silver tone and about 40mm (1.57") ( plus 15mm (0.59") for the bail) x 30mm (1.18" ) in size.

It comes on an 18 Inch Chunky Chain: (457.2 mm) silver plated cable chain necklace with 5x3.5mm rings and lobster clasp - tarnish resistant.

*I have one ready to ship!*

FYI:
Some elements may vary slightly depending upon availability of products needed to create the necklace. 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.

This item arrives in pretty eco-friendly packaging all set for gift giving, even if it's a gift for yourself!

All items marked "ready to ship" will go out within two to three business days, provided there's no announcement indicating I am back-logged or out of town in my shop announcement (text space right below my banner).

Sometimes international shipping can take a very long time. Please know that unfortunately, we cannnot track items once they leave the US. International shipping time varies greatly.

I will absolutely either refund or replace (your choice) if an international item gets lost in transit after one month.

These are not in my control and I have no way of knowing when or if they will be imposed or how much they might be. For information you should contact your local customs agency. I cannot mark the custom form as a "gift". That is against the law.

It's a total bummer when it happens, but I have no control over this and unfortunately cannot be not responsible for extra charges incurred due to such flagging. Price advertised in my shop does not include duty or VAT. If charges are incurred, you will be expected to pay this once the shipment arrives.

Additional policies

As mentioned - any one of my sachets could be filled with any of the scents I offer. Simply add in the "notes to seller" your scent choice. All available scents:

Lavender
Balsam Fir
Eucalpytus
Lemongrass

Blend options would be:
Enchanted forest (eucalyptus leaves, Maine balsam fir, lavender, tea roses and essential oils for a magical, woodsy refreshing scent.)
Lemongrass and Lavender
Lavender and Maine Balsam Fir
Orange and Lemon Citrus (orange peel, lemon peel and lemon and orange essential oils)
Rose (the sachet would be stuffed with polyfill, rose petals and rose fragrance oil)
Grapefruit and Lemongrass (grapefruit essential oil, orange peel, and lemongrass)

also:
Autumn (spicy autumn blend of Neroli fragrance oil, mandarin orange essential oil, dried ginger, nutmeg, balsam fir and cinnamon chips)
Winter (Maine Balsam Fir and dried Eucalyptus leaves)
Summer ( fresh mix of dried lemon peel, lemongrass, and hibiscus.)
Spring (Lemongrass and Lavender)

And, just a note on the scents and how long they last:
The lavender, Maine Balsam Fir, and Eucalyptus last super long. The bright citrus notes in the lemongrass or grapefruit fade a little bit faster, leaving behind the grassy notes of the lemongrass or lemon verbana.
In a few year’s time you can always "recharge" your sachet or ornament with a couple of drops of essential or fragrance oil on the back fabric of the sachet.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ FAQ's ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Q. What does FAQ stand for?
A. Frequently asked questions. :)

Q: What the heck is punch needle?
A: 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 hand punched with love by me.

Q: How long does that take?
A: Since each tiny loop must be hand punched and the needle must be twice threaded - it can be very time consuming to make just the punch needle portion of a piece. They are then framed, turned into a pin or necklace, sewn together with decorative fabric to make an ornament or sachet, etc. It depends upon the size and type. Each listing will tell you about how long they take to make. A small ornament takes about 1.5 hours of hand punching - then it takes about 30 minutes to sew on the machine, stuff, and hand sew closed to finish the ornament.

Q: Do you do custom work?
A: Absolutely! I love taking custom orders. Feel free to convo me!

Q: Where do you buy your patterns?
A: I don’t! I create them all in my head, sometimes with the help of royalty free clip art.

Q. Hey… I can do that! Do you sell kits and/or patterns?
A: I’m sure you can! :) But, nope! Not in the pattern business just yet. If you are looking to get started with punch needle, your local craft store may have some kits available. Be warned, that needle they sell is kinda junky though – I used one in a punch needle emergency once and found it really frustrating. Try online – look for a more expensive needle (somewhere in the 20 to 30 dollar range)

Q: Um... Punch needle "emergency?"
A: Hey! don't judge! It's a real thing! :)

Q: How long does the scent last on your sachets?
A: The very first lavender sachet I ever made over five years ago is still holding its scent quite nicely. The lavender, Maine Balsam Fir, and Eucalyptus last super long. The bright citrus notes in the lemongrass or grapefruit fade a little bit faster, leaving behind the grassy notes of the lemongrass or lemon verbana. I note in the listing if a sachet/ornament is less strong smelling than others. Some are just a hint of a fragrance, rather than a headache inducing scream of scent.
In a few year’s time you can always "recharge" your sachet or ornament with a couple of drops of essential or fragrance oil on the back fabric of the sachet. (Though I wouldn't recommend that for the ornaments/sachets that are backed with silk) Because most of my ornaments and sachets are small, none of them pack an overpowering scent punch. Just a hint of awesomeness.

Q: What is with your obsession with avocados?
A: I love them!! First of all, they are delicious. Healthy fats, Folic acid, Fiber, Potassium, Vitamin E. Yum! The ancient Aztecs believed avocados were an aphrodisiac. The Aztecs called them Ahacatl which means “green testicle”. (I swear! The interwebz told me so, they wouldn't lie!) They also symbolize lust, sexuality, fertility, potential, and continuity of life, richness and indulgence. But I also love them because they compliment the punchneedle technique so much, with the adjustable needle making such a realistic pit. Mostly, they are just plain quirky and fun!

Q. Where do you buy your dyed weaver's cloth?
A: My awesome husband and I dye the cloth ourselves.

Q: Can I purchase some dyed weaver's cloth from you?
A: Not in the supply or kit business just yet - if that ever changes, I'll let ya know! :)

Q: I love your work - but even thinking about scents gives me a migraine. Can you make me an ornament that is unscented?
A: Absolutely! Any one of my pieces can be made with just regular polyfill instead of their herbs or spices. Feel free to convo me!

Q. Isn't punch needle "cheating" at embroidery?
A. I certainly don't think so! You may be thinking of the battery operated machines that let you cheat *at* punchneedle, but all my works are done in the old fashioned technique with a special needle that is tediously threaded twice with embroidery floss, and each loop is punched through the special fabric called weaver's cloth over and over.

Q: How long will it take for my piece to arrive?
A: That depends on a few factors - where you live in the world in relation to where we ship from (NYC), whether your piece is a ready-to-ship or made-to-order, and whether or not there's anything in my announcement (text right under the banner of my shop) indicating that I'm back-logged or out of town. Each listing, if it is made-to-order will tell you how long (approximately) the piece will take. If it's ready-to-ship, it will go out within two to three business days, provided there's no announcement indicating I am back-logged or out of town in my shop announcement (text space right below banner) See more about shipping under "shipping policy".

Q: You're an actor and singer? Have I ever seen you in anything?
A: Actually, YES! You probably have. You just didn't notice me, because I was fuzzy and in the background. Though my first love is Musical Theatre and I do a lot of it, my bread and butter these days is background work (Extra!) on shows like Boardwalk Empire, The Good Wife, The Following, The Leftovers, Blue Bloods, Person of Interest, Mozart in the Jungle, The Michael J. Fox Show, The Knick, various commercials and movies as well. Feel free to check out my band Sonas (Gaelic for Happiness) www.facebook.com/sonasfiddlers and you can also purchase our three albums here on Etsy!

Q: Wait… I can buy your albums on Etsy? You didn’t hand make that! Isn’t that reselling? *clutches pearls*
A: Any indie artist can! Here’s what Etsy Admin told me: “This is an example of our Production Assistance policy, wherein a seller can have outside help with the creation of an item, provided the seller still does the majority share of the work and ships the goods. In this case, we consider making the music to be the majority of the work. (Much like a photographer creates an image and can have it printed by an outside company.)”

Q: Do you do consignment/wholesale?
A: Due to the time consuming nature of my pieces it isn't very easy for me to make wholesale or consignment work, I take each on a case by case basis. Please feel free to convo me if you are interested!
