Stocking Detail 11

The top seam is buttonhole stitch in Caron watercolors with detached chains and French knots in watercolors and wildflowers. The bottom seam started with chevron stitch in a thicker fiber. Rayon floss in several colors and red metallic thread were used for the accent stitches which include pistil, French knot, detached chain, and straight stitches.
The motif was created with eyelash knitting yarn, a metal shank button, and shell beads. Looks a bit like a dragon's nest, doesn't it?
