Today we’re going to shine the spotlight on our hand embroidered pieces.
This is another traditional crafting technique that’s been part of the Miao people’s culture for over 2,000 years.
It creates vibrant and colorful pieces that would make a beautiful gift for a friend or family member this year.
As with any type of needlework, the process begins with a piece of material.
They’ll often start with a larger piece of fabric than you will see in the finished item, making sewing much easier.
A natural linen canvas is often used for embroidery, and this can even be painted to give it a hint of color.
When you browse our hand embroidered jewelry, you’ll notice that no two pieces are the same.
They feature colorful patterns which may also incorporate elements of nature.
Using ancient sewing techniques, the Miao artisans are able to create these beautiful designs.
A wide range of stitches is used in each piece, which helps to add more texture and intrigue to the design.
The pattern will be replicated for earrings so that a pair of earrings can be created together using similar colors and techniques.
Of course, slight variations may appear between the two earrings, but that’s all part of the joy of wearing hand-crafted items.
The jewelry is then assembled so that it’s ready to be worn by yourself or a friend you gift one of our pieces to this year.
The history of the Miao people spans over 2,000 years, and we are proud to showcase these traditional crafting techniques to people around the world.
