The Silver & Silk Art Nouveau Rose kit is a stylish design which covers using long & short stitch with silk flosses in subtle grey tones for the petals and silver plated metal pearl purl for the petal and ribbon outlines. Metal chips are also used in the centre of the rose and as a highlight on the ribbons. Silk floss has a lovely sheen to it, which combines beautifully with the silver metal thread. The finished embroidery measures approximately 14cm wide by 14cm high. The Art Nouveau kits are a series. The Rose is the fourth in this series. Other designs include the Tree, Waterlily and Tulips listed separately in my Etsy shop. Further designs will follow. Suitable for all skill levels.
