Stocking Detail 12

The upper left seam is scroll stitch worked with a silk knitting yarn, a strand of rayon floss, and a metallic thread. Along one side, two strands of rayon thread were used for detached chains in a series of fans. Seed beads accent the fans. The upper right seam has a piece of tatting made with a single strand of variegated silk floss.

The motifs were done with E beads in a matte finish and transparent seed beads. The large motif started with silk ribbon twisted ribbon stitches and has an E bead at the end of each seed bead leg. The smaller motifs have seed bead legs coming out of the E bead in the center. The effect is very dimensional.
