Make a brooch for yourself, or buy a kit to give as a unique gift.


This metal thread brooch kit is a simple but beautiful design, which covers two basic techniques of metal thread work - couching using pearl purl and attaching 'chips'. It is an ideal starting point for launching an exciting journey into goldwork and all its many possibilities, as well as a talking point wherever you wear it.


This kit includes two squares of ultrasuede (synthetic suede), a square of calico support fabric, a square of beading foundation, beads, pearl purl, bright check purl, a reel of sewing thread, beading thread, beeswax, full instructions with stitch diagrams, a needle. All kept tidy in a neat little box.


If just purchasing the Instructions & Diagram, these will be sent to you via email and will comprise comprehensive instructions with images, stitch guide, diagram with key and full sized design. Please select Instructions Only at checkout for free 'delivery' by email.


Available on black ultrasuede with a choice of metal thread (silver, gold or copper). Please choose when ordering. The beads will match the choice of metal thread.


The finished embroidery is 7cm by 5cm.

Suitable for all levels.

All my kits are packaged using recyclable and/or biodegradable materials.

Designed by Liz Tapper at The Art of the Needle.
