This beautiful gold tissue and silk leaved fruit tree is a bespoke piece of textured artwork to celebrate a special day.
It is designed as an original memento for weddings, birth and naming ceremonies.
I like depicting trees in my artwork as I find them beautiful and inspiring: connecting us to the earth and our ancestors. They also symbolise the family tree of life - joining people together through a wedding or a new birth. This fruit tree further represents the hope that their future will be a fruitful and bountiful one.
A thoughtful present that is carefully handmade to order using free hand machine embroidery, and you can choose which words you would like to add to make it truly personal!
You can have names and dates, nicknames or a short message made up into the gold tissue (e.g. 'Sam and Olivia, 21st July 2012' , 'Rosie, 12th July 2012', Maddy, apple of our eye, 3rd July 2012 ). You may choose up to 30 characters for the names allowing you to write a personal message if you wish. The words are stitched freehand to look like joined-up writing and will be stitched within the main trunk of the tree and further naturalised by using swirl stitching to represent the knots and grooves of the trunk.
The green silk leaves are hand cut and stuck to the tree, together with 12, 13 or 14 rosy red shell buttons representing the year the picture is commemorating! You can also choose pink shell buttons if you would prefer to have a gentle suggestion of a cherry tree or if pink better suits a colour scheme.
Free postage with this item. Free gift wrapping is also offered, and the gift can be sent directly to the recipient. You can choose this at checkout. The artwork will be tied with 'stitched with love' ribbon, and then placed in a custom made box. A personal message can be added to the back of the picture if you wish.
The picture is created on (and into) white card by free hand machine embroidery, essentially, drawing with a sewing machine! Each picture is original and every tree created is therefore unique - no two are the same, just like us!
The trunk and branches are created using a variegated thread in gold tissue paper. The personalised words are subtly stitched into the trunk of the tree - just like sweethearts carve their names into tree trunks!
