Ruby Thursday More combines two of our favorite things into one: adding embroidery to jewelry to create unique necklaces and earrings that have a vintage appeal to them.
Featuring mainly floral patterns, her collections are a display of love of nature, textile, and color. In fact, color provides a sort of starting point to her work, as Thursday More admits she goes “color hunting” on the internet, as she looks for future references. Aside from color, her designs are also influenced by her mood, imagination, and memories.
“Creating is in my blood,” she admits, noting that her grandmother used to make colorful quilts, while her mother sewed pencil cases and throw pillow cases. “I try to stitch every day, even just for an hour,” she added in an interview with the Etsy blog. “I like the portability, the fact that I can take it with me wherever I go. It doesn’t require electricity. It doesn’t require the internet. With hand embroidery, you’re just in the moment.”
You can purchase her original pieces on her Etsy shop or follow her Instagram for that creative inspiration.
