The temple is interpreted in beautiful silks and metal threads. the palette is mostly monochromatic, ranging from the deepest emeralds through lively teal tones and shading into the palest of aquas for the sunset sky. the composition is cheered by a bit of yellow and gold. The temple itself is worked in diaper pattern couching on gold braided thread.
Travel is my passion, and the mystic lands of Asian beckon especially to me. Emerald Temple is the third in a series of embroideries expressing the Asian theme; the others are Amethyst Pavilion and Garnet Torii.
