Sneak preview

I've been working away on some pseudo goldwork which isn't yet finished (and won't be for a little while longer as I have more urgent things to concentrate on first), but thought I'd give a little sneak preview.

And yes, I have noticed that there isn't any gold ...

Gold part II

Day two was chip work over felt, surrounded with couched pearl purl. The chip work is a 'crimped' wire, called wire check which is cut into tiny 'beads' and then stitched randomly. The effect is super-sparkly.
