"Worked in two different colour schemes, rich reds and creams for the Tudor rose and soft pinks and creams for Rosa eglantine, these pieces feature different designs, each one constructed from the same elements.
Stitched onto silk satin with lustrous silk, metallic thread and sparkling paillettes, each piece is bordered with corded coral stitch and hangs from a gold twisted cord looped through mother of pearl rings."
