RED HEART brooch
Hand-embroidered brooch, made in France!
Do you know gold embroidery? It's an embroidery technique using metallic threads, created entirely by hand. Historically, this technique was used to embroider royal and religious vestments, as well as military decorations! See what I mean? It's a technique that gives extremely shimmering, brilliant results... Nowadays, it's used for more trivial pleasures ;)
Here's a pretty little red heart brooch, entirely embroidered with curly metallic cannetille, to great effect. The heart is encircled by a silver jaseron, all embroidered on red wool felt. Dimensions: approx. 3 cm x 3 cm.
