With embroidery having a moment, we can’t get enough of Reilly Case’s embroidered jewelry – because when it comes to rocking grandma-inspired necklaces, we’re fully on board.
With a background in creative arts, Case taught herself the art of embroidery through trial and error. “Embroidery became this mindful experience for me,” she writes on her website. “Something that made me feel uplifted but at ease. I’d become so connected to screens, to work, to getting it all done; embroidery was able to be the antithesis of that.”
Experimenting with new mediums, she enjoys reviving vintage materials. “There’s something so very special about fabric that has been delicately hand-embroidered,” she says. “Especially vintage pieces. Knowing the amount of time and love that has gone into it, I think seals it with a bit of magic. I fell deeply in love with the pieces but also the process: sitting on the couch with a cup of tea, a cat on the lap and a needle and thread in hand. It became such a mindful practice for me. Something that I genuinely need to do to feel centered.”
She also encourages others to practice embroidery, saying that “if you are looking for something to give you a moment’s peace; Something to focus your thoughts when they are spinning and the world seems so busy, embroidery is a lovely place to start.”
