One pretty leaf

I finished the rest of the Lacquered Jewels in the top leaf....without a counting error! Then using Kreinik cord, I did the Japanese six into one twisted threads technique and couched it around the outline of the leaf using a single strand of cord.

Ooooo! Brave of you to twist the cord yourself. I will have to pull out my Shay Pendray book and refresh how that's done.

It is lovely, Pat. This photo is particularly clear so I can see the previous outline was just drawn on.

This is just lovely. Can't wait for this one to be framed!!!
