A new needlework nibble!
This is a super simple ornament that uses couched 1/8 Tresse de Sofie (choose either gold or silver) to make the calligraphy design in minutes. Then spend a little longer making the creative edging to the ornament with applied silk facette - using its wire as an advantage to make shapes off the ornament. I finished it with some purls and check to give a heavier Renaissance-inspired edge. This is the first in a series of ornaments taking advantage of many of the passementerie threads and what they can do as the edging of simple ornaments.
Choose either gold or silver! If you like red instead, order the materials for that version separately too.
