The Whirligig Flower Brooch is a Level 1: Beginners of my Further Education kits.

The kit comes with an instruction booklet and with a PDF file with colour work-in-progress pictures of the entire stitching process on the brooch which is 16 pages long and with over 60 colour work-in-progress pictures for making the brooch.

The brooch is a multi purpose piece of Jewelry as when it is not being worn it can be displayed in a 4 inch picture frame as a piece of art.

The embroidery is worked by sewing down strands of pearl purl which is a coiled metal thread, the stitches are hidden in the coils of the thread. In-between the lines of pearl purl are sections of black and violet soft metal beads.

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. The PDF file combined with the instructions will give you a well rounded learning in the technique but the PDF file is not essential to work the brooch.

The last picture in the picture gallery shows an example of one of the pages of the PDF File with the work-in-progress pictures for making the 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.
