The Silk & Silver Art Nouveau Tree kit is a stylish design which covers using long & short stitch with silk flosses in a range of pink, purple and mauve shades for the leaves and couching silver plated pearl purl for the tree branches and leaf outlines using grey sewing thread and green silk floss. 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 Tree is the first in this series. Other designs include the Waterlily, Tulips and Rose available from my Etsy shop. Further designs will follow. Suitable for all levels.
