Gold Thread Embroidery Inspiration

A diverse range of techniques will be explored within each symmetrical pattern such as a controlled use of embroidery achieved through the use of metal thread that will be additionally raised through the use of padding. Both smooth and rough purls will fill and border organic and structural motifs and convey an urban-gladiatrix mode to the overall compositions. Metal threads will be balanced out by raised chain and stem stitches, turkey stitches trimmed in various ways and satin stitches
