This is completely amazing!  I love the variety of stiches and the colors are excellent.  What stitch was used on the curly parts on each end by the leaves, the part in blue?  I think the same stitch is used in the goldenrod straight border around the main part of the paisley teardrop, too.  That one interests me and I'd be interested in learning how to do it Smiley

Oh, and I'm totally pinning this when I get home...pinterest is blocked as 'social networking' at work Angry

I will have to say that jemimah introduced to me silk thread....I am not sure if I love her or hate her... Grin

It is beautiful and you can see from this piece, just how gorgeous it is (well, of course the design and stitching is very important as well!)....

Beautiful work...just beautiful...

I will continue to be inspired to learn and do more stitching from needlework artists like you! (

The pale blue squirly bits and the pale gold main teardrop shape are just chain stitch, very simple. The other "lines" are coral stitch, one of my faves - it has a fun knotty texture. Smiley

This was a gift for the lovely luckdragon Smiley

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/210146_28Nov11_luckdragons_cuff_4.jpg

I found the basic paisley shape in a non-needlework pattern, and then just did my own thing with selecting stitches and colours.

It was stitched using silk thread (soie d'alger, 2 threads) on a coarsely woven silk fabric. I used a variety of simple stitches, including chain stitch, coral stitch, blanket stitch, colonial knot, and cretan stitch. It was fun working with a non-rectangular shape. I tried to keep the stitching fluid and casual rather than being too precise about measuring everything out. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and I think luckdragon likes it too Smiley

I'd love to hear your comments and suggestions for future cuff-y stitch-y things!

Love the idea, the colours, but would prefer if i was more loose around the wrist. Which is difficult, I have the same issue with my own handcuff.

But lovely anyway Smiley
