This pretty motif is inspired by the embroidery decorating accessories worn during the reign of Elizabeth I. It is an intriguing combination of colorful silk embroidery and basic goldwork techniques using colored metal threads. A Tudor rose, strawberries and borage blooms in colored silk are entwined with delicate stems and leaves using metal threads on a silk satin ground dotted with sparkling gold spangles.
