In real life, this project looks so much nicer than the photograph. It’s not only practical for a small pair of embroidery scissors, but is very decorative which can be worn around the neck or just left on the table for people to admire. It’s worked on a piece of guipure lace, placed on moiré taffeta, which is then lined with silk material. Gold cord is couched around the lace design before the front and back are heavily worked with Swarovski crystals and Czech beads which shine beautifully. The tassels are highlighted with 3 diamante rondall balls, filigree gold balls and crystal diamond cut drops. The necklace which hangs around the neck is alternated with beads, crystals and gold filigree balls. The case size is 13cms long, add the tassels which are 9 cms long, the width is 8 cms. The necklace will have to fit over your head, so this will vary with most people.
This piece could be handled by a beginner but some experience would be helpful. The kit consists of all materials, beads, crystals, rondal and gold filigree balls, threads, instructions, illustrations, coloured photo’s, needles etc.
