Warwick Sampler Progress. . .

Here's some photos of the progress I've made on the Warwick Sampler.  This flower was executed by couching down thin strips of metallic leather.  I tried different couching patterns on different each petal.  On 1 petal I tried to couch down loops of the leather to see how that changed the texture.  The base of the flower was created with bullion knots of gilt smooth passing (size 4) and long pieces of tarnished silver smooth purl.
