Grillz

The whole grill trend that was going through the teenage American community a year or two ago had me completely confused, but I couldn’t help but think it would make for a nifty piece of goldwork. This piece I finished last year, with vague ideas of continuing a series, but instead it languished forgotten in a box on my shelf until I started cleaning out my study last week.

The face is made of simple straight stitches in black silk, while the grill is made of check purl chips and smooth passing thread. Big thanks also go to the photographic expertise of foto di matti.
