Embroidered – A Pendant and a Poem

a video poet husband – a seamstress wife
a collaboration

It had started off simply enough – a plain bit of fabric and some pretty floss.

A camera was added into the mix.

Together, they recorded life as it happened.

Finishing touches, more ideas, even more tweaks, and finally it was done.

Two pieces of art – a pendant and a poem.



  1. Beautiful! Both the pendant and the poem!

  2. So special!

  3. What a beautiful collaboration! Fantastic work…both of you :)

  4. That was really neat. =) I loved seeing the embroidery grow and fill in, and the poem was great too.

  5. THAT WAS FLIPPIN’ AMAZING!!!!! Wow. Just… wow :)

  6. So beautiful and touching!

  7. I had to watch this three times. It made me cry.

  8. OMG Jodi, I simply adore this. I’m going to share it on my blog this week, if it’s okay with you? I came by to check out how you made the embroidered pendant – I’m thinking of doing my next embroidery class with a pendant tutorial. I remembered how beautiful your pendant is! This video makes it so much sweeter. <3!!!

  9. Where can I get the material or something like it. I don’t embroider well but I think I might be able to handle this.

  10. Greetings! Very helpful advice within this post! It’s the little changes that make
    the most significant changes. Many thanks for sharing!

  11. Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate you penning this article and the
    rest of the website is really good.
