Bearded Iris




Bearded Iris is a project that has been on holiday for a while – being taken off my website in the lead up to the Embroidery Association of Canada Seminar in July 2018.

This project is worked in a range of gilt and 2% gold English metal threads, Japanese couching thread and ultra-fine phosphor bronze mesh on a background of sapphire blue crinkle velvet.  (Please note:  the phosphor bronze has a pinkish tinge – the mesh used in the original sample is brass which is no longer available).

Design size:  13cm x 25cm
