I had never thought of using stumpwork to make jewelry and this fairy ring is so cute.
Or how about this cute pendant? I love the combination of colors on the apple.
If you want to take your embroidery onto a more ornate level this beetle if definitely inspiring, but I'm not sure I could get away with wearing it.
These little bugs are so cute, I could easily see a few of these adorning my picnic blanket or my summer patio table cloth.
I love this bumble bee piece by Jane Nicholas and you can buy it from her website. It would be perfect for any nature lover and would fit in with beautiful neutral decor.
This tentacle takes stump work to a whole other level with amazing projection from the hoop.
This beautiful stumpwork pattern is available from Taetia is available for instant download from ETSY.
