Embroidered with silk and delicate gold tissue, this personalised wedding artwork features the happy couple's names and the start of their family tree.
Carefully crafted for each individual couple, this fruit tree picture makes a lovely personalised anniversary gift or memento of the wedding itself.
The artwork features silk leafs, colourful buttons and freehand stitching. The couple's names are embroidered in the trunk of the tree, creating a subtle but personal effect.
For me, trees are a wonderful symbol of family and connection, connecting us with the earth and our ancestors. They also symbolise the tree of life, which is perfect for a new marriage and the start of a new family.
A thoughtful present that is carefully handmade to order using free hand machine embroidery.
You can choose to include names and dates, nicknames or a short message (e.g. 'Sam and Olivia, 21st July 2012' , 'Rosie, 12th July 2012', Maddy, apple of our eye, 3rd July 2012 ). You can include up to 30 characters.
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. 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 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.
All original artwork is supplied in a cream mount, ready to frame.
Frames are also available (53cm wide by 55 cm tall, approx 4cm deep). The frame is locally handmade in Bristol, using Lime wood.
The frame is fronted with glass which is carefully protected in transit. Framed artwork is sent in a custom made, foam lined box for protection.
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.
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!
Mounted: 51cm wide by 52 cm tall. The internal picture aperture is approx 32cm square.
