Hooked on embroidery

  • • Nadya's varied work includes necklaces, wedding dresses and panel pictures
  • • She is inspired by nature, particularly flowers
  • • It may take her more than two months to create an embroidered item

Drawing has been Nadya Pak’s passion since very a early age. By the time she entered the Zhurgenov Kazakh National Academy of Arts, from where she graduated as a fashion designer, she had tried a number of arts and crafts, from sculpture to embroidery. "I settled on embroidery because I loved the meticulous work, the way that seemingly endless stitches create a whole piece," she recalls. Nadya's background in drawing is helpful, since she creates the patterns for her embroidery works herself. Neither is her fashion degree collecting dust on a shelf; Nadya is becoming increasingly involved in fashion and now makes corsets, evening gowns, wedding dresses and other garments.

Lily

To create this brooch, Nadya used sequins, various types of beads and a few natural stones, embroidered with floss thread and tied with Italian cord. Crafted from white Italian suede, with a pink shade intensifying towards the tip of each petal, the flower evokes oriental lilies, frequently found in Japanese woodblock prints.

Flower of the Gods

Flower of the Gods incorporates Swarovski crystals, sequins, various types of beads and Italian velvet. It was handcrafted using the Lunéville technique, as well as velvet, stitch and needle embroideries. The lotus flower was chosen by Nadya due to its strong symbolism, since it emerges beautifully from muddy water, reflecting the adversity of human life. She used black and white to convey the duality of souls.
