Metal Thread work : Autumn


As the current project has to be one involving metal threads, I thought I would share the work I have done so far on techniques involving these threads. This sample is using goldwork techniques but I decided to use copper tones instead.

I painted the background using purple silk paints on the same night that I was sumi-e ink painting with Gin. I was thinking of swirling waves and wind at the time. The quick design I sketched out involved leaves and fire which reminded me of autumn.

Wonderful. I love the swirls and the gold/copper embroidery is beautiful
