A little while back when I was trying to find artists to showcase in my shop I came across Oh My Heart Embroidery and literally fell in love. Canadian artist Kari Lockhart creates the most adorable and detailed embroidery jewelry I have ever seen.
I tried to pick a few of my favorite pieces, but then I realized they were all my favorite pieces! I pretty much had to flip a coin to pick out which of her unique pieces to feature. These photos were taken from her Instagram page. And can I just say her photography is as good as her jewelry!
She has such a variety that not matter what your favorite piece of jewelry is you could find something. I like that she chooses neutral colored backgrounds that don’t take away from the amazing embroidery work on top. And you can see that the background cloth, although simple, really adds to the texture of the pieces.
I simply love the cute pink tassel at the bottom of that last necklace. And the shape she chose is something you don’t usually see in an necklace let alone an embroidered piece.
I like that she can play up the style of her pieces too. For this one she used a little embroidery hoop. How adorable is that! Its cute, but gives the piece a polished look that anyone from a fashionable teenager to a crafty mom would love.
And she comes up with the most interesting ideas! Look at this one. She put an actual pearl in the center of the clam. An actual pearl! And she added some gold toned accents which I think makes this piece just pop. Her attention to details is what makes all her pieces unique.
