Serenity is a study of Japanese iris at the edge of a pool. The gently flowing of the water is created with the silver metallic stitches. The arrangement of the iris is reminiscent of an ikebana arrangement.
The main flower is worked in dark and medium purple silks while the upper right flower is a side view worked basically in medium and light purples. There is an unopen bud at the top of the cluster.
The leaves are in three shades of green. The water is a blue green and the background is a very light green.
The threads are silks and metallics created for the Ro. All stitches are traditional to Rozashi.
The kit comes complete with all threads, ro attached to the frame, a Japanese needle, nori sticking paste and an illustrated instruction booklet.
