Application of Traditional Embroidery Techniques in Contemporary Fashion [Take #4]

Stone Work

Stone work is an ancient embroidery technique in which small gems or stones are sewn onto the fabric. Stone work is actually used to highlight other forms of embroidery. In ancient times, real precious and semiprecious stones were used along with beads and pearls and it was a very expensive form of embroidery. Nowadays crystals and semiprecious stones are used. Stones can be used alone as a centerpiece or in formation of lines and other various ways. The stones give an extra sense of physical realism to the embroidery.stone
