Exquisite projects for everyone . . .
Goldwork is actually very simple, relying on a simple couching stitch to capture the thread to the cloth to create beautiful effects. Beginners and experienced embroiders will both enjoy this inspiring book. Goldwork can be combined with lush fabrics, brightly coloured silk threads, rich ribbons, beads and sequins to create gorgeous textures and designs.
The reader can use this book for inspiration to create their own beautiful creations or make one of the 15 beautiful projects, all of which have clear instructions and detailed templates.
Each project is contemporary incorporating elements of historical design, including French eighteenth century floral designs, the timeless of Indian wedding saris, the charm of Byzantine jewellery, the frivolity of the Belle Epoch and the swirls of European and African folk art.
