Metallic Thread Embroidery ...an extension of goldwork

In this embroidery piece metallic threads are used to give a jewelled effect on the scarab. This work is not yet finished but we posted what has been done to show part of the process.


The scarab itself measures 4 inches by 2 1/2 inches. To see the image better click on the image.

Hello!
I just found you through Google/Blog Search/"goldwork". I must say that your wife and youself are MOST talented!!!
May I ask which tool you are using to annotate your images? I'm at http://elmsleyrose.blogspot.com/ talking about 16/17thc silk and goldwork, and stumpwork, and any miscellaneous related embroidery subject that I find. Obviously, VERY image heavy! I'd love to be able to label some of my 'construction' images like that, because I'm a very big believer in sharing what I know/learn (mistakes and all) with my readers.
Your help would me much appreciated :-)
