I made an unlined white linen head coif. All seams were finished by hand in either rolled hem or I flat felled them. The gryphons were placed on each side of the coif and were made in gold linen and appliqued on by whip stitching a black thread along its edges. They stand about six inches tall. The feathers and details were worked in gold and black floss using the back stitch. The attached strings are a 4 card tablet weave made from white mercerized cotton.
It was a "made to order" item for the recently crowned HE Douglas, Artemesia's newest Court Baron.
