Jewel Embroidery

Jewel Embroidery is usually done upon table linen and similar pieces. Its distinguishing feature is the introduction of dots in the design, which are worked in imitation of jewels. These jewels are raised into high relief and are then worked in Satin Stitch. The colors selected are those which most nearly correspond with the hues of well-known gems. The remainder of the design, in which the jewels occur is worked in the stitches best adapted to the pattern. The bright hues of the jewels give a brilliant effect to the work.

Not much can be found on the subject of Jewel Embroidery and, apparently, few, if any, pictures exist of a sample. If in the future I am able to find one, I will add it here.
