The official symbol of the city of Florence, Italy, as well as the Medici family is a very fancy fleur de lys. The course explores this complex and delicate Renaissance Italian design with traditional raised English goldwork, beading, and needlepoint worked on white Congress cloth. Types of gold used are pearl purl, bright check purl, wire check purl, check thread, Japan gold, and whipped plate. Techniques include padding, various methods of invisible couching, parallel laying, twisting, and chipping. Two very different lattices of pearls and gold are used for the background and the elaborate border.
