Strawberries and Cream Cuff

 Images Copyright Fern Petrie 2016

I love antique and vintage embroideries. This delicate and very feminine cream coloured cuff consists of three vintage embroideries finished with gorgeous crocheted lace. When I look at a vintage embroidery it isn't just the time and skill that goes into the production of these pieces that I respect, it's the fact that in a past time some other woman wanted to spend her time creating an object which she considered beautiful. The idea that these precious pieces of embroidery can become valid again by reimagining their use is very close to my heart.
