I recommend Pomegranate & Rose for embroiders with some experience in fine embroidery and basic knowledge of metal thread embroidery.
Pomegranate & Rose embroidery design measures 18.5cm (7 1/4″) square.
I created the design Pomegranate & Rose for Inspirations magazine as a celebration for issue 100 of the magazine. As inspiration for the design Pomegranate & Rose I looked at the wonderful embroidery seen on men’s costume from the late 18th century. At that time, colorful embroidery stitched in fine silk and metal threads was used to embellish jackets and vests.
Pomegranate & Rose features a stylized arrangement of flowers and pomegranates. The embroidery is stitched onto Thai silk with stranded silk and a variety of fine metal threads. The metal threads creates an elegant textural contrast to the silk embroidery and adds depth and interest to the floral design.
I used a fresh colour pallet of cornflower blue, ivory and coral red silk threads to embroider the flowers and pomegranates to achieve a contemporary look. The metal threads form the heart-shaped stems and shimmering highlights. Most of the stitches used for Pomegranate & Rose are common embroidery stitches and simple goldwork techniques.
