Calla Lily Brooch April 02, 2015 22:23

 

This piece was commissioned for a 50th birthday present. It was embroidered using a couple of complex techniques despite it being very small. The petals and leaf were sewn using silk shading but so that both sides are the same; the front and the back of the work look completely alike. Metallic wire work was used to create the little pearl details and the stem of the lily.
