Item details

Vintage from the 1930s


Silk, Metal

This gorgeous crimped thread was made by laminating silver to silk thread. Then, in some mysterious manner, the brilliant red was applied to the silver. I don't understand it, I just take them at their word and appreciate the rich, luscious red. These metal threads are as supple as any ordinary thread and can be used for many projects, beading, collage, crafting, embroidery, weaving, sewing and jewelry making. One of our customers used this red to make earrings, a bracelet and a ring for a special occasion. She plyed the thread and then braided it, mixing in black urushi to giver it greater substance. What does your imagination say?
