Paillettes (pronounced "pie yetts”) are:

  • made of real gold and real silver
  • firm, strong rather than bendable
  • flat (not cupped or bowl-like shaped)
  • found in history museums on samplers, couture fashions, textiles of the nobility and more
  • used by needleworkers today in samplers, needlepoint, stumpwork, crazy quilting, embroidery, and costume design

How to attach a paillette:

  • Use your needle to pick up a paillette through its center hole
  • Use a few straight stitches or a decorative stitch to 'tack" it down: bring the needle and thread up in the center of the paillette, and back down on the outside edge of the paillette
  • Use a clear thread, a matching metallic thread or silk thread, or a contrasting metallic or silk thread, depending on the look you want
  • You can also attach a bead on top, securing the paillette beneath

The frequently asked question

Will they tarnish? As with any metal, they can tarnish over time but respond well to polishing. Kreinik's paillettes are ecclesiastical grade, meaning they are treated to prevent tarnishing. Will time ruin embroidery made with paillettes? Not if the textile has been taken care of, ie, not exposed to the elements, not washed (dry clean if necessary), etc. Treat the embroidery like the valuable textile it is, made from your valuable time and creative dreams.
