I think these are so cool. It moves needlepoint into a whole other realm. The canvas comes with a stitch guide and mandarin floss. I went back in and added a few other threads and some bijoux for added definition and a little sparkle. The canvas for the pendent is bought including finishing costs upfront, do two and save. Stitch one up, send it off and in about 2 weeks it comes back to you in a gift box. It isn’t cheap but neither is the quality of the finishing. Only to be compared to something you would find in a gallery or very high end craft show. Its’ also possible to have it gold plated. Cufflinks and earrings are also an option and are about 1/4 the size.
