The detailed needlework pins created by Japanese artist, Itoamika Jung Jung are simply nutritional fiber candy for the summer soul. Using lace threads in muted colors, these jewels embody everything fine in nature.
I’m at a loss to even speculate what level of finite skill it takes to create such exquisite representational fruits, vegetables and flowers from minuscule needles and lace yarn.
Do I have the patience required to knit with lace? No. But, I just had to order Jung Jung’s book, Knots, Itoami Plants.
Is this not perfection for the first day of summer?
