This seam embellishment started off with a piece of ribbon which I couched down using Herringbone stitch. Using bugle beads I then picked out the V shapes made by the herringbone.
At the top of the Herringbone is a detached chain with a long tail. This ‘tail’ is simply the stitch that ties the chain down worked longer than normal. A seed bead has been added to the straight stitches that are either side of it
The row of stitching near the butterfly is zig zag chain with seed beads stitched in the middle of the chains.
The braid embellishment is three straight stitches topped off with seed beads.
