Welcome to “All about the Diamonds”
Diamonds are very versatile. They are symbolic of love and romance that puts a sparkle and glisten in your eye. They can be industrial to cut hard metals. The shape of a diamond is used artistically in Canvas Needlework pieces to add dimension.
Diamond stitches can provide either a smooth or raised appearance. This piece will illustrate how versatile diamond stitches are by using Straight stitches and Rhodes stitches to give the piece a dimensional appearance.
This is offered as a beginner/intermediate class concentrating on two different diamond stitches: Diamond Straight stitch with variations and the Diamond Rhodes stitch. We will be using various threads to give this design sparkle while visually maintaining a smooth diamond look. The design will be on 18 count white mono canvas. The design is 6 inches wide and 6 inches tall. I finished this piece for a jewelry box. This class is a great chapter or guild piece which can be taught in a 4 to 6 hour class.
