Thanks for the nice comments I got on my first post, and as you seem to enjoy it,

You can see better the french knots (with few strands of silk), the sequins, the metallic threads.

My teacher helped me to chose the combination of colors and I think she did a great job Smiley

Stunning--the sequins and shishas ( mirrors ) really add sparkle and interest...I also love the color combination--and I admire you for working with metallic thread! tres joli!

Merci Smiley

The metallic thread is really easy to work on with the hook, a lot easier than with a needle, it's a different kind of metallic thread than the one DMC, anchor, do.

This one is more thick, more metallic, hence easier.

As for the shishas, I prefer to use them with cotton, than with metal, I prefer the rendition. But I learn to fix them with the hook as I had to do it, and here the effect is nice.

Thanks, again.

Oh wow, this is cool!  I'd love to see a picture of the needle, too - I've never heard of Zardosi.

Well, it's really difficult to find them. Even here, there is only my teacher who is in Paris (and I don't live there) who sell some. I spoke with other people in US who couldn't find them either.

I'll get a full batch when I'll go to India Cheesy
