Gold and silver metal wire embroidery is used to create a unique collection of contemporary lapel pins. The colour and structure of these intricate pieces make them perfect for a Wedding.
The Goldwork process begins as a drawing on tracing paper, these are pricked with a needle and pounced with chalk dust to form a ghost of the pattern upon a base fabric.
This fabric is then tacked onto a linen base, stretched on a trellis frame and embroidered with gold and silver metal wire, using one technique at a time. Magnets are secured and sealed with military Melton cloth and edged with black dye.
The collection is produced by Hand & Lock, a well-established and highly regarded British embroidery atelier that has been operating in the heart of London since 1767. In possession of a Royal Warrant, past commissions by Hand & Lock include gowns for the Queen, the Queen Mother, and high-level Military officers.
