Sample of the Month: October

'Halloween-esque' Drama

Hand & Lock’s Communication Manager Robert McCaffrey was set loose amongst the bead room embroideries to choose this month’s sample

‘Embroidery can express a host of diverse moods and I love this piece for it Gothic, Halloween-esque drama. The black embroidery on black organza risks being lost, but

the delicate gold chain stitch creates the necessary contrast. I also appreciate the clever use of matt and glass seed beads, floss silks and metallic threads all in black’.
