About the design:

Lambent was the first of these miniature designs in the signet style and was done just to see if I could make one so small. When it looked ok, I tried several more and eventually ended up with this group of four. Their individual names are associated with light and dark and so the name of the design became ‘Light and Shadow’. These were a lot of fun to stitch, but tougher to design than you might think. It was a challenge to get much detail in something so small and even more difficult to make them all come out the same size.
