"Portrait of a Llama Under the Stars", hanging ornament
My Portrait of a Llama started off as a special commission for a customer overseas. As usual I was wracked with nerves when I sent it off, needlessly though! As both her and her daughter loved it instantly. Inspired by their joy, I couldn't resist making another for my shop.
My Llama Portraits are made to add magic to your walls. They work well in nurseries and kid's rooms, as special ornaments living rooms and even creative spaces like offices or studios. Gorgeous during festive seasons yet wonderful all year around too.
I LOVE making these. I lavish them with enough little details to keep inquisitive eyes marvelling at them. Made with all sorts of treasures such as lace, the highest quality fluffy soft wool pom moms (that I made myself of course), Liberty print ribbon, cotton twine, silk tassels, silver faux leather stars, sequins and resplendent Japanese glass beads.
I designed, hand cut and hand stitched each llama and cloud using the highest quality 100% merino wool felt. It is super soft but much stronger than synthetic felts, which means my work will last and last. Conforms to European Toy Standards and carries the Oeko-Tex ‘confidence in textiles’ mark, so it contains no nasty chemicals, including heavy metals. The metal hoop used is steel within a rubber coating.
The amount of detail and the combination of materials used, not to mention that it is entirely handmade, means that each portrait is utterly unique.
I have kept the hanging string extra long to allow you room to play with your ideas. You can either tie a loop and hang it on a hook, use masking tape, whatever suits you!
As a rough guide, the loop is about 15cm in diameter.
Each ornament will be sent boxed and wrapped in tissue and water resistant cellophane wrap - to protect it against our fabulous British rain.
Care instructions and a sample of washi tape will be included too.
