These intricate embroideries are the creations of Humayrah Bint Altaf, a talented artist from the UK, who stitches fabulously ornate insects and trees that incorporate gold twist cord, metallic beads, and other delicate materials.

“I often wander through the woods near my home, where I gather leaves, twigs, feathers and other things I can find to bring back home and preserve,” says Bedford-based Altaf. “I also like to incorporate nature’s treasures into my embroideries and with each piece I feel that a part of me has been embedded into my work.”
