The finished brooch can be painted with a clear non-yellowing varnish so it does not tarnish.

I provide a detailed instruction booklet in the kit with step-by-step diagrams and instructions on how to work the brooch. I have also included a brooch pattern and brooch pin in case you prefer to work a pendant instead of a brooch.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.

The Goldwork Peacock Feather is an intermediate design.

The peacock feather is worked in Or Nue which is the method of couching down a metal thread with coloured threads to create a pattern. Each frond on the feather is couched down with silk or metallic threads to create the iridescent feather.

The fabric comes with the design hand painted on so you do not have to worry about transferring the design yourself and all the threads in the kit are clearly labelled.

The Goldwork Ram design is a combination of metal thread and counted thread embroidery.

The design is worked on black 25 count Lugana fabric. First a tacked outline of the design is transferred onto the fabric, then the face is worked in simple blackwork pattern in 5 shades of metallic threads and outlined in pearl purl.

The horn is padded with crochet cotton and then soft gold beads are sewn down over the crochet cotton alternating between different shades and texture of the beads creating a dimensional horn.
