Class and Teacher:  Key to My Heart by Michele Roberts
Registration Period:  July 1 - August 31, 2016
CyberWorkshop Begins:  November 1, 2016
Proficiency Level:  Intermediate

This traditional raised and padded goldwork piece was designed to be the top of a box. The background as well as the key are studded with pearls and Swarovski crystals. A bit of passementerie that moves serves as the tassel to the hole in the key, and in fact, drapes over the edge of the box.

This motif is entirely worked in raised traditional goldwork. Types of gold used are pearl purl, bright check, twist, check thread, and Japan gold braid.

This design is worked on iridescent white #18 canvas. The finished design measures 5" x 7".

The design is finished with the four-sided stitch and easily mounted on the paper maché keepsake box.

The design is stitched on Congress Cloth. The finished design is 2 ½" x 8 ¼". An optional kit will be available.

The couched diamond shapes of this design contain various textured stitches such as Rhodes hearts, beaded waffles, double crosses, and Jessicas (circular and diamond). The higher texture of these stitches contrasts against the flatter satin and fern stitches that worked in carefully laid silk. Hints of a hand-dyed thread enhance the design.

The design is stitched on #18 canvas. The finished design is 8.75" x 6.50". An optional kit (in two colorways) will be available.
