Cape Town-based designer and embroidery artist Danielle Clough uses thick, bright thread to create stunning images of flowers, portraits of people, and other images including fast food, emojis, and birds. Some of her most unusual pieces are different flowers hung on the strings of vintage badminton and tennis rackets. You can explore more of her work in this gallery and over on Instagram.
