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.

Please visit the Metal Thread Information page for FAQS on goldwork/metal threads.
