Handmade brooch/pendant Frida Kahlo – by Hellen van Berkel
This 100% handmade art piece can be worn as a brooch, but also as a pendant on a necklace. The brooch comes in a pretty little box, and with a sticker that can be used to hang the box on your wall as your own little treasure.
These bead and needle art pieces are handmade in a small Calcutta workshop, where master embroidery artists/craftsmen take pride in their work. Their skills are often passed from father to son and by collaborating with them Hellen van Berkel wants to support and celebrate this time-consuming process of hand embroidery and its heritage.
Technique: bead and needle embroidery.
Height: 7 cm.
