Chatelaine Pearl Lights Embellishments


I received my pearls embellishment pack from Martina Weber today for Pearl Lights.


They are so beautiful! They're made up from her own stash of fresh and saltwater genuine pearls. She only has very few packs of these (I think she said 10), so if you want a pack do let her know before they run out.


Among them are natural coloured sweetwater pearls, the flat shaped ones are very rare and precious Chinese Sweetwater Keishi pearls, and there's even a genuine South Sea Keishi Pearl in there! My photos do them no justice at all.

I so want to start this now! :-) It's one design I've seen very few progress photos of. I remember before it was released, some stitchers were discussing how they'd like to use pearls they've had in their families for generations. How lovely it would be to see progress photos with all the different pearls!

Ooh lovely! The fabric looks great too - what a beautiful marble effect - I love it!

Gosh they look precious - I mean that in the true sense of the word! You're right - there aren't many WIP piccies of this one but I bet it's beautiful. Is that the fabric you're thinking of using?

They are lovely, the'll look great in the finished piece. I hadn't seen that one by her before. My favorite one by her was a class she had a while ago called Alpine Garden. She has so many beautiful projects. I'll enjoy watching your progress.

Ooooh, those pearls look scrumptious! No wonder you want to just dig in and start stitching this one...I would have a hard time holding back myself!!

Tina, the pearls are beautiful and will make a wonderful addition to Pearl Lights. I love Martina's stuff and have a few in my stash but now they are out of my budget. I admire them from afar. :)

These are so pretty Tina. I have been bugging Martina for these embellishment packs, but didn't know she'd finally offered them. I hope I'm not too late to get a set. I've had Pearl Lights in my stash for awhile, but can't seem to get around to it. I love love love this design, and can't wait to stitch it. Is that the fabric you're going to stitch yours on?

Totally stunning project for me. I'm not in pearls art, but I wish you much pleasure to the achievement of your work. Hello from France. You can learn a little about me on my French/English web site.

Hi Tina!

I was trying to find any pics of Pearl Lights WIP or the finished piece which is how I came to your blog. I'm thinking of starting this sampler. Have you started or may be even finished it? I'm so eager to have a look at the pics :)
