I’ve been wanting to to give embroidery a try for a while. I had never embroidered anything before this brooch, except for few half-cross stitch works I made when I was a child. So I looked for embroidery classes last year, but I didn’t find anything I liked in Milan. I didn’t have time and will to start as self-taught. I wanted to learn the basis of embroidery with the help of a teacher at least and understand if it could have been a right hobby for me.
In July I finally found a one-day embroidery workshop and, despite my big and growing belly, I decided to get it a try and I signed up. It was a Goldwork Couture Embroidery Workshop held by Jelena – JS Embroideries at Hub Textile in Milan. The aim of the one-day workshop was to made a moth brooch with the Goldwork technique. I honestly have to say that I didn’t know this embroidery technique, but I saw the picture of the brooch on Instagram and I thought it was a good and fun challenge!
Then I looked for more info about Goldwork and I found out it’s an ancient embroidery technique. It’s been used to make precious decorations with gold threads for years.
Here you can find two pictures of my work in detail, I made with the help of Jelena!
Here are some pictures I took during the workshop, in which you can see some step of the brooch making (I finished the velvet back up at home, thanks to the instructions I was given by the teacher). The materials to make the brooch were provided by the teacher during the workshop.
The workshop was very fun and I found out I like embroidery very much! It’s relaxing! I’d like to use this technique to decorate some dresses I sew or to make accessories (earrings for instance). Let’s see!
Here I’m wearing the brooch on a red dress in wool crepe I made last year.

that is so beautiful, I saw it on IG this morning and the process looks really interesting. I’m tempted to try it now and love how you styled it on the red top

That is really breathtaking. You’ve got me Googling goldwork embroidery! I’ve also never seen a brooch worn on a statement back like that, very original!
