Today, you are in for a rare treat. A first viewing of an exceptional metal thread piece of embroidery titled, Pope Francis. Jessica Grimm is the knowledgeable and talented stitcher. Those of you who have worked with gold and silver threads will realize how exceptional this piece is. Everyone else will be dazzled and impressed. Enjoy!
This photo does not do the embroidery justice. I had to crop the top and bottom red framing to get a screen shot of it.
Contact information to reach Jessica’s blog is at the end of this short article.
Here is a close up of the upper part, Note all the different techniques and the geometrical exactness of everything.
Note the features of Note Francis. I would recognize him immediately if he walked in my door. Faces are so hard to do. The closer you look, the more detail you will see . I am impressed++.
To see better photos, read about this as shared by Jessica and, to see previous posts written during its creation see Pope Francis by Jessica Grimm. You will be glad you took the time to do this.
Jessica lives in Bavaria.

Thank you so much for featuring my goldwork embroidery on your blog Ann! I am going to mount the piece today and bring it to the framer tomorrow. Can’t wait to see his face! He frames all my more substantial pieces and he had never seen anything like this before. He has now a completely different view on embroidery :).
