The design is inspired by a 17th century embroidered panel that depicts flowers and insects in metalworked frames. The moth is stitched with beautiful flat silks using techniques from the Elizabethan period. It is placed inside a richly embellished goldwork frame worked with three different types of goldwork threads and tiny gilt spangles.
The design is a part of an Elizabethan series of classes which explore historic embroidery techniques and designs around the theme of stylised flowers and insects in various metalwork frames.
