Beautiful embroidered beetles, bugs, and birds

Etsy artisan Humayrah turns gold and iridescent thread into the most charming and intricate beetles, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Humayrah says:

The influence of the natural creation is woven through a lot of my work. I like to incorporate iridescent materials such as gold leather, metals, beads and silks in my embroideries that are inspired by entomology and botanical illustrations.
