Leafy Collar Shirt

You may remember that, some time back, I did an embroidered panel for a friend's shirt. Well, my dear friend made up the shirt and included my panel - and did a great job!

The panel design is adapted from one in a period pattern book and executed in split stitch. The shirt looks fantastic on the recipient!

Bead Necklace

My talented friend Lord Gabriel recently made this beaded pendant with our Baronial device on it, and I wanted to make a necklace for it so that I could wear it. The necklace is made of 4mm glass seed beads in the Baronial colours of red, white and blue, interspersed with faceted gold beads. It is strung on tiger tail for durability.
