November TIF finished

Here's the finished piece and pix showing progress. I used my initials, MJB, as the basis for the design, using goldwork couching technique to do the first two gold designs, then decided to repeat them larger in a fan shape on top but just couching in the negative space, and the final piece reminds me of a maple leaf, not a bad design considering I'm originally from Canada.

I think it may be a little bag when it grows up. I've since added a couple of beads but will post that pic later.

great interpretation, I always find goldwork fiddly so I am really impressed with this, well done, wonderful!
