I had a vision, it was so exciting; i immediately woke up from sleep.
Isn't that what creation's all about ;something so alive, so exciting; you can't wait to get out of your bed.

So the vision was me wearing a very special set of earrings.
It was my favourite painting THE STARRY NIGHT by ÀRTIST VAN GOGH done in embroidery in the form of earrings.
It was like a dream just imagining every stroke of paint recreated using thread.

A PAINTING BY THREAD if you will.

So i immediately got to gathering the supplies and just began......

And it was beautiful converting that dream into a reality.




Step 1: MATERIALS:~


1.) Close weave cloth.
2.) Wooden Embroidery hoop.
3.) Cotton embroidery floss in required colours and shades.
4.) Hand embroidery needles.
5.) Metal bangles (2 per earring).
6.) Earring hooks (2 per pair of earrings).
7.) Transfuse paper/iron on patch paper/seal paper.
8.) Fevicol or fabric glue.
9.) Pliers.

Really Incredible, Really great job. I saw the picture on the features page and thought I could pick up some pointers for machine embroidery, Blown away by the fact that it is done by hand.
Great Rendition. A million or so years ago in my youth I hitch hiked 5 hours to see that painting (and quite a few others of his to be sure). I'm glad it wasn't about machine work. All the Best in the future.

These are incredibly beautiful! As an art teacher I must also tell you that these are some ironic appendages! Being that they're Van Gogh inspired earrings!
