Silk shading on a necklace.

This was a little silk shading sample I did for a necklace. The necklace blank was really narrow so it was a bit of a squeeze to stitch. The embroidery is only one centimetre wide. The little acorns are french knots and satin stitch with stem stitch for the branches. All worked in one strand of stranded cotton. I mounted the embroidery on vilene but I think I will use thin mount board next time so I can stretch it tightly. I can see a few wrinkles on this one!!
