ETSY SHOP LOVE...Tinctory
Tinctory is a shop out of Birmingham, UK.
I have no idea how she does it, but these pieces are amazing! I love how each one is delicately stiched. Eva the designer describes the process in her own words in her shop profile:
"The smocked necklaces are inspired by the intricate needlework seen on historic textiles. They are made entirely by hand using old elaborate techniques.
The fabric is gathered into tiny pleats which are then held in place by several rows of smocking stitches.
Most of the silk I use is recycled which means each material is slightly different (thickness, weave, lustre) and each piece unique."
And even more awesome...she will do custom pieces!! Be sure to check out her shop today!
