The Textile Art of Jackie Cardy



Jackie Cardy's creativity is evident in these embroidered feltworks.
This textile art requires a multi-step process to achieve such amazing results:
constructing the felt, dying the silk velvet, machine or hand-stitching 
the embroidered embellishments that add texture and definition, and so on.




Here's a great quote that Jackie has on her website:
"He who works with his hands is a labourer, 
he who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman, 
he who works with his Hands and head and heart is an artist"
St Francis of Assissi




She also makes beautiful brooches...




...and colorful birds that can be used as brooches
or hung from an attached ribbon.




She creates some of her designs on silk paper.
