Part of the Anatomy Collection, by Mother Eagle.

This is a hand-embroidered Human Skull set into a silver plated brooch pin. The skull is stitched in 100% cotton threads and the piece worked on to heavy vintage cotton, which has been lightly dyed using organic tea, giving a lovely, antiqued mottle.

My embroideries are painstakingly worked in miniature. I use magnifying lamps to help me make the tiny stitches, most no more than a millimetre long. I use an array of fine English needles to ensure the finish is neat and tidy. This design has been worked in split stitch, the curves of the thread following the contours of the skull.

The embroidery alone took over 4 hours to create. It is the very first of a strictly limited edition.

It is mounted into a high quality silver plated brooch pin and measures 43mm diameter around. It is a classic setting for an unusual composition.

It comes from a smoke-free household, and has all my care, skill and love stitched into it.

Your unique brooch will come beautifully gift-wrapped as standard for no extra charge. Perfect to give to someone special as a gift, or to unwrap for your very own.

I have several other skull designs available, see here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/99900129/skull-profile-brooch-hand-embroidered-in

The metal mounts used on these pieces may naturally tarnish over time, adding to their lovely, antique appearance. All settings are lead and nickel-free.
