Embroidery, part 1

These are Edwin's collar and cuffs for the Crown outfits, fully pearled. The brooch is a commission piece from Gaukler Medieval Wares in BC.

The embroidery is done in split stitch with two strands of white silk embroidery floss on dark blue linen and ~4mm button pearls sewn with silk thread. The pattern is from a 12th century German altar frontal--the cuffs have it as-is, the collar is adapted for the shape.
