... cabochon embroidery!
Can't stop doing it ever since I learned it (and mbak Dini as my mentor is to blamed, lol...canda mbak Din, mbak Dini memang wokeh!)
I especially love the ruffled embroidery technique.
I have these cute images, bought from Etsy, covered it with resin stickers to make them into cabs.
I just use a simple, basic ruffle embroidery, not that I'm too lazy to apply fancier technique, but I don't want the bezel competed the cute image and ruin the entire look .
My land lady commissioned me to make the above brooch, she picked the image out of my collection, it was a picture of three cute fairies and requested it to be made in brown color. I combined the brown beads with champagne and a hint of gold color. This is a magnetic brooch (using magnet instead of a pin at the back).
The two pictures below are for my very dear friend of mine, mbak Nana (mbaak, maaf lama ya, kepotong pindahan, hehe).
She chose images from my collection too, they were a fairy hugging a bird (the colors are baby pink, baby blue, white and a hint of silver) and a fairy riding a snail (the colors are pink and turquoise).
For the latter, I challenged myself by making the ruffles from no. 15o beads, which are soo very small. Alhamdulillah, it's done the way I wanted to .
These are not magnetic brooches (as requested), so I attached brooch pins on their backs.
Hope I can make some more soon, insha Allah .
