Brooches for embroidery competitions 2021
7 photos

I decided to take part in embroidery competitions again. This year I made two brooches for @greenbird contest with nautical theme. And one brooch in theme of russian fairy tales for Telpiz contest.

  1. ‘Deep peace’ brooch. Imagine the underwater world, beautiful and calm, no matter what is going on outside, how hight the waves are, you always feel inner peace, enjoying life as it is.

🔱I tried to replicate real marine plants from the pictures to create realistic mini sea world. 🐚There are seaweeds, different kinds of corals, sea feather, starfish, lettuce sea slug and oyster shells.

  1. Pearl shell brooch with starfishes,
  2. If you familiar with Aleksandr Pushkin’s work, you will recognise the vibe of my wise cat brooch. If not, here are the piece about it: “There is a green oak by the sea; There is a golden chain upon the oak: And night and day a wise cat Walks around upon the chain; It goes to the right – and starts to sing, It goes to the left – and tells a story.”

These are complex and unique work, not light-weight but full of details and story behind.

Embroidery competition 2019/2018
8 photos
  1. Royal jester beetle brooch from silk Au ver a soie threads.
    I made this brooch specially for the contest sponsored by Au ver a soie silk threads manufacturer and supplies shop Greenbird.ru
    This contest had no theme, so I decided to make something in my favorite medieval vibe. The main rule was to use Au ver a soie silk threads.
    It took me two weeks to make it and a lot of time to think about details.
    Size of the body is 1.38x2.56 in (3.5x6.5cm), width with wings is 2.76 in (7cm)

  2. Floral beetle brooch that was made specially for the beetle contest.
    This competition was organized by Valentina Telpiz, famous embroidery artist. I’m proud to be among 3 winners of her contest.
    1275 minutes of pure work, not counting the time to invent the design and picking supplies.
    Size of the beetle body is 1.82x2.56 in (4x6.5cm), width with wings is 4.33 in (11cm)

‘Madam Coco in the blooming garden’ Hoop Art

This work was made for the competition in theme of Impressionism, sponsored by Swarovski and Greenbird.ru
Pierre-Auguste Renoir was my main inspiration. I also love portraits and flowers, so my work is full of embroidered blossom around my watercolour drawing. During the creative process I held the image in my head: the feelings from visiting the blooming garden in the summer morning. All the fresh smells of greenery, songs of early birds, dew sparkle are welcoming you. Festive atmosphere fills you with colours and happiness, here and now.

Size: 22x22cm.
Materials: 36 Swarovsky crystals, watercolor, silk ribbons, textile, sequins, wooden hoop, beads, glass cut, glass bugles, wool felt, linen fabric, glue, goldwork wire, DMC threads.
