I love the plaid fabric on the back. In person, the color is a lot more intense and shiny. BTW, the dark lines on both sides of the backing fabric are part of the design, not gaps between the edge and cording.
All in all, I think it looks nice.

February 17, 2017--Completed the stitching, beading and thread couching on this beautiful needlepoint version of Faberge's Jeweled Spiral Coil Egg. The multi-colored beads really sparkle.

January 27, 2017--Finished laying the gold ribbon and am beginning the beadwork. The first picture below shows how the egg looks with the canvas threads running true vertival. The second picture shows it slightly tilted to have more of an egg shape. This is how it will hang when finished. The purpose is to visually reduce the slant of the gold ribbon diagonal lines while making the beads look like they are coiling sideways around the egg.

January 15, 2017--This is one of the classes I took while at ANG's 2016 National Seminar in New Orleans, LA. It's called Theo Fabergé's Jeweled Spiral Coil Egg and is designed by Michele Roberts, known for beautiful goldwork projects.
I haven't had an opportunity until today to resume working on this piece. Here's what I accomplished in class.
