Heart In Hand ~ Thread holder & Pin-cushion ~ OPEN EDITION
Size: 5"W x 10.5"L x 1"DThis piece is VERY special to me! The pattern was made from a tracing I did of my mother's hand many years ago. I had told her that when I found it in myself to follow my dreams and become a folk artist I would create a Heart In Hand piece for her. She passed a few years ago and so this piece is made to honor her knowing she is very much a part of my dream becoming reality.
This piece is made from approximately 23 pieces of hand-cut and carved wood. The finish is either a custom mixed stain with washes of paint along the edges that match the color of the velvet or a painted finish. I use antique Victorian Mother of Pearl carved buttons as an accent on each piece. I make these pieces when time permits but if you need one right away just contact me and I can see what I can do to meet your needs.
The pin-cushion is handmade from hand-dyed velvet and is filled with sawdust. It is attached at the base of the chip-carved heart with a small amount of cotton cording or silk ribbon so that it can dangle off the edge of the thread holder.
This is an open ended edition and therefore NOT a one-of-a-kind piece. However, each piece is handmade to order and no two will ever be exactly alike.
