Contemporary embroideries from gallery pieces to giftware and cards. Fabulous colour and fabrics combine to create beautiful, quality artwork which bring joy and delight.
Using machine and hand stitching, Swifty Bell Designs embroideries are available framed, mounted or on canvas to suit both gallery and gift shop settings. Fabric, stitch, and paint are used to produce items of all sizes including the new poppy sculptures. A range of handmade greetings cards, individually stitched, complement the larger pieces.
The designs are quirky and incorporate a whimsical take on nature. Bold, vibrant fabrics work together with imprecise embroidery that makes every item unique. Ranges available include poppies, long legged birds, hares, dogs, cats and trees. The stitched, layered, elegant fabric poppies come in limitless colours, long legged birds are sure to delight and the mixed media trees, representing each season, are delicate and stylish.
My latest design is a free standing poppy sculpture which is a stitched, two sided Swifty Bell Poppy with a black aluminium stem including a coil of gold wire holding two felt green leaves. The base of the sculpture is thick waxed plywood. The poppy head and leaves can be rotated to give the best view at any angle. They are available as a single bloom or in a group of three and come in a variety of colours.
