This 5-inch square needlepoint canvas depicts a triple-strand pearl necklace on a solid bright blue background. There is plenty of space around the pearls to add a monogram, wedding date, or other detail.
I used my Modern Alphabet chart (see Charts section) to create the initials seen in the stitched example.
The shading in the pearls has FIVE colors, plus the shadow. The colors are subtle on the canvas--I recommend bright light and careful kitting!
Can be finished self-finished in a large Planet Earth jewelry box, or a wood Betsy box. This design is just over 5 inches square, so no need to add stitched rows around the perimeter.
This canvas is stitch printed in the US by Pixels on Cotton, using archival ink in a patent-pending process that achieves a perfectly clear pattern for stitching. On 100% cotton Zweigart mono deluxe canvas.
