The Goldwork Lion 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 4 shades of metallic threads and outlined in pearl purl.

The mane is worked in 15 different types of metal in shades of gold, copper and pewter.

In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 19 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on each technique on the goldwork design.

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.

The Metal Thread Brooch is a beginners project.

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 gold soft metal beads.

I have also included a brooch pattern and brooch pin in case you prefer to work a pendant instead of a brooch.
