The model was stitched on a Ribband bookmark with 3 strands of Needle Necessities Floss NN142 "Grecian Olive". The row of metallic was stitched with one strand each of DMC Metallic #5282 "Gold" and #5283 "Silver". Metallics fray very quickly. Use the minimum length possible, and only insert a short way into the needle. Stitch from the center of the design out. On a small project like a bookmark, you can stitch straight across from one side of the bookmark to the other with floss, but not metallics.
