Old World Style
I was browsing Old World Shoppes on Etsy and came across these beautiful hand-embroidered felt rings by Waterrose. There are so many beautiful colors and designs to choose from. Each one is unique.
I love seeing vintage embroidery style on newly-handcrafted designs. This Antique Morning Glories Cuff Bracelet is a fine example. Working the intricate vines and textures of the flowers, along with the botanical textbook-like illustrations, Waterrose's free-hand embroidery adds an old world style to a modern accessory. Needlework designs like this are truly exceptional!
Check out the Embroidery 101 video tutorial on Waterrose Handcrafted Obsessions blog. And stay-tuned....it sounds like there's more to come!
Search OWS on Etsy for more nostalgic, traditionally handcrafted goodness from Old World Shoppes.
