Florentine Nights is an elegant, hard-shelled evening minaudière stitched in a variety of elegant black, gold, and silver threads such as Neon Rays Plus, Kreinik Metallics, Frye Werks, Silks, and Sundance Beads. This small treasure box features two different Florentine, or bargello, patterns that complement one another. The class will explore some of the history of bargello, as well as a bit of beading for the handle, while creating an elegant bag.
