The embroidery is very simple and only around the neckline. His device contains "blood drops" so I incorporated that and worked them in gold stem stitch. He also wanted his Ducal Strawberry leaves, so they were worked in black using stem stitch for the main outline and a delicate Holbein stitch was used for the details of the leaves.
The black, gold and white inkle weave was made by Lord Griff and Lady Brigitta.
