Artist Stitches Supermodel

An artist has spent nearly 2,000 hours hand-stitching a jewellery designer’s promotion for his new range. Inge Jacobsen stitched over eight pictures of Danish supermodel Freja Beha Erichsen for Georg Jensen’s spring/summer campaign. The Danish-Irish artist, who was helped by students from The Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court, was personally asked by Jensen… Ms Jacobsen stitched over four small images and four large ones by hand and the works were executed in fully stitched and partly stitched versions.” w/ photo
