Today I leave for London to prepare to exhibit at The Handmade Fair this weekend. As I was planning for this event, I found it necessary to come up with a new line of needlepoint kits. I wanted something elegant being that we will be at a palace, but also not overly complex as I want to appeal to someone who might have yet to discover the joys of needlework. These DIY Needlepoint Jewelry Kits are my very best attempt at fulfilling those goals. This is the first glimpse at the kits. A few of the designs will be available on Etsy but unless you come see me at Hampton Court Palace this weekend (stand B97) you will have to wait until October for the rest.
Each kit includes a chart of the design, a basic stitch guide, luscious silk threads from Kreinik, A small square of zweigart 18 mesh ( 18 holes per inch) canvas, one tapestry needle and the jewelry hardware to finish into either a pin or a pendant. To start, there are 10 patterns to pick from but I have already dreamed up others that will get added later. Also, expect to see more Kreinik threads in my designing future. I have a fun Halloween project I will post next month using their glow in the dark thread.
My product photos were taken by Carey Cooper and the Bronte books once belonged to my grandmother, Naomi.
