My Bonsai

A Study in Gold Work

This beautiful embroidery is designed for the EGA Seminar 2022 in New York City.
Come join us. It is a wonderful exercise for exploring goldwork.

Create this beautiful bonsai without having to care for a live tree. The project is worked
in metal threads. Threads in the course are pearl purl, check thread, wire thread #371,
metallic braid, bijoux, a black synthetic thread, antique black/gold, antique gold braid
and spangles.

The work is on a silk fabric. Stitches include stem/outline, couching, padded diagonal
satin stitch, and attaching spangles.
