The Goldwork Honeysuckle is a beginners design.

The honeysuckle can be worked in gold, silver or copper and stitched on a cotton velveteen fabric. Areas of the design are padded with felt and the metal embroidery threads sewn over top.

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.

I provide a detailed instruction booklet in the kit with lots of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on each technique on the goldwork design.


Techniques and Threads Worked on the Honeysuckle Design:

  • Padding: Areas of the design are padded with felt and crochet cotton.
  • Stems and Tendrils: The stems and tendrils are worked by couching down Japan thread. The Japan thread is synthetic so will not tarnish. Some of the tendrils have a seed bead on the end.
  • Leaves: The leaves are worked in rows of twist couched down with a green thread.
  • Petals: The flower petals are worked in purl thread such as rough purl, smooth purl and bright check purl.

Each of my goldwork designs have different metal thread techniques so doing one design doesn’t necessarily prepare you for another design. Each design is unique making for a new stitching experience each time.

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.

Gold 2% WM means that there is 2% gold in the plating on white metal (silver plated copper). The gilt threads have 1/2% of gold in the plating. Both types of thread tarnish as the metals are copper based and oxidize over time when exposed to light and the elements. Display the embroidery in a dark location with no direct natural or artificial light to slow down the rate of tarnishing.

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