Waterrose and her handcrafted obsession

A Van Gogh masterpiece turned into a wearable work of art. The Starry Night embroidered cuff from Waterrose, and one of my favorite items on all of Etsy.

Waterrose is obsessed! I mean, I'm a hard-working overachiever, but Rose makes me look like an absolute slacker. She creates the most gorgeous embroidered pieces, each one a unique and special piece. This dark crow brooch embroidered on linen, with a dangling vintage key, is so unusual and amazing. Such an expressive face.

Rose is creating a series of one-of-a-kind embroidered Christmas ornaments, inspired by retro shiny blown glass ornaments. New holiday heirlooms to pass down through the generations, and each festive and lovely. You can see the tradition of needlecraft, sewing and ornate embroidery that was handed down from her grandmother and mother in everything she creates, not to mention her bright talent and love for what she does.
Rose is also one of the sweetest members of the Etsy community. Stop in and visit her Etsy shop of many amazing treasures.

  2. Holy crow, that is truly beautiful work.
