Goldwork peacock - Part 2

This is the continuation of my goldwork peacock embroidery project.

While looking for goldwork embroidery materials, I found these golden wires which I had no idea what they were.They looked like stamens for artificial flowers.Nevertheless, I bought them hoping that they would be useful in any of my goldwork embroidery projects.

 While working on this peacock project, I decided to use those wires to make the crest of the peacock.After twisting the wires here and there, this is how the crest looks like.

 Here, I’d couched the crest on top of the peacock’s head.The crown is ready!In my next post, I’ll show you how I’m going to outline the body of this peacock.
