Christmas Heirlooms Victorian Gem

Victorian Gem

Victorian Gem was released as "Christmas Heirlooms Victorian Gem" in June 1993 as part of Loretta's Christmas ornament club collection.  This design is also found in the Needle Adventures Artists Collection leaflet called Medallions.  See the separate Medallions article for further information and a photograph of how it was finished.

This is apparently finished folded over in the middle with a tassel at the bottom and cording to hang it.
