My Monday crush: hand-embroidered adornments by An Astrid Endeavor to give your outfit a color-popping boost. Aren’t these gorgeous? Each of these gems is handmade by Astrid; a San Francisco based maker who takes inspiration form everything around her to create one of a kind embroidered jewelry and home decor. Love!
As she has a family and a fulltime job as a child life specialist in a hospital, Astrid found herself to be bound on her own projects at night. It made embroidery a perfect medium to work with as this allows her to create her items from home, as quiet as can be, working on different projects.
Lately, I’ve been inspired to create more one of kind, abstract pieces that incorporate crystals and various protective imagery. However, I still love making some of my tried and true geometric favorites that are filled with color and pop. Most of my pieces are fairly large and are really statement pieces, so I’ve been inspired to really take it down to a smaller level for people who are interested in more subtle smaller jewelry, but who still want unique, hand crafted pieces that are interesting to wear.
You can follow her on Instagram for inspiring updates and her latest projects.
All of the pieces below and many more are currently available in Astrid’s Etsy Shop. And: if you purchase any of the items before November 6, make sure to use the code EARLYHOLIDAY2017 for a 20% discount!
