Artist Makes Beautiful 3D Embroidery Portraits With Designs That Mimic Real Hair

Modern embroidery has come a long way. It's no longer your grandma's art. Nowadays artists are coming up with many unique and special creations.

The same can be said of Bernita Broderie, a brilliant French artist who has really taken embroidery to a new level. She creates amazing 3D hair embroidery that truly resembles natural human hair. You really need to see it to fully appreciate it.

What makes Bernita's work so special is the way she masterfully stitches colored yarns into cotton fabric to render realistic, flowing hair.

Her work mainly focuses on the silhouettes of women with long hair, chic braids, or beautiful updos.

Bernita has been interested in embroidery for quite some time now but she only started creating her hairpieces about a year ago.

Wow, that's hard to believe!
