Laying copper

Here you can see the four areas that I have laid the copper, in pairs, just like Japanese gold.  It is Japanese Embroidery Center copper and is couched with a single strand of Kreinik cord.  Below is a closeup of the section in the middle right so you can see the detail.  Next up is starting the center design as the Kreinik 215 did not arrive yet.

Very pretty couching! Everything looks delicate and beautiful, especially in the close ups.
