CODE: GOLDCREST LAMPSHADE
"This Goldcrest design was inspired by the beautiful colours of this lovely bird that I've seen flitting in and out of the hedgerows. It's the UK's smallest bird and so I wanted to create a design to celebrate those hidden details of our British countryside."
Jo created this original, handmade Goldcrest design from her studio in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside. It was created using free motion embroidery, an exciting technique where she uses the sewing machine to 'draw' the details of the wildlife onto the fabric with the sewing machine.
This really is a luxury piece and will become an admired focal point for your home. This beautiful lampshade features a goldcrest in mustard, taupe and natural colours on a duck egg blue background. There are lovely accent colours of pink and purple provided by the floral and leaf elements. This unique lampshade has been designed and stitched by Jo and includes appliqué detail as well as lots of hand-stitched detail. All Goldcrest Lampshades will be made to order.
Conforms to BS EN 60598-1-2008, the British Standard for Luminaries. All of the lampshades we sell are fire resistant. The PVC material has been tested in the Lighting Association Laboratories and has passed the glow wire test.
