The Floating Threads of Amanda McCavour

The beautiful floating embroidery of artist Amanda McCavour is just captivating. Much like we make freestanding lace, she stitches her designs on a water soluble fabric, so when it’s finished it leaves behind just the overlapping, raw threads.

I love the look of delicate decay all her pieces have. The floating effect just makes them ghostly. Gorgeous!

Check out her website so see more stunning images of her work.
