Sarah Buckley, aka IttyBittyBunnies, encapsulates beautiful natural landscapes into miniature embroidered pendants. Working in hoops that fit onto the tips of her fingers, she stitches mountains, cacti, and forests with impressive detail. The finished pieces are then attached to an antique bronze chain and worn as a one-of-a-kind necklace.
Embroidering at such a small scale allows Buckley capture the essence of a setting. Instead of showcasing every rock, leaf, or blade of grass, she highlights the most vibrant colors in the landscape, often blurring the line between sky and ground. At the same time, she adds a few defining elements to give you an idea of each place, such as the cacti in the desert. The results are pieces that teeter between realism and abstraction.
Buckley sells her creations through IttyBittyBunnies, her embroidery-focused Etsy shop.
