A Little Piece of Handwork

Sarah had a friend come and stay for a night. Jen is a talented embroiderer and we were lucky enough to have a small workshop - just for the 2 of us. Here is my Jen's Jems Brooch which I finished and wore today (size 2.25" or 6cm).
Background is hand dyed silk velvet and I've used silk ribbon, variegated threads and decorative sequins and beads.
Such fun! Thanks so much Jen.
