This sampler symbolizes the gift of Gold. According to the legend, Gold was given by Melchior, the King of Arabia. Gold was a gift traditionally given to kings, and thus signifies the acceptance of the Child Jesus as King of the Jews. This sampler is shaped like a casket or treasure chest, giving an impression of the type of container such a fine gift would be carried in. In keeping with its contents, the opulent gold stitching, couching and beadwork shimmer with rich beautiful lights! Where possible, I have used the similar fabric and fibers used in Frankincense. Price includes accessory pack with enough beads needed for sampler. She is retired and we can’t order more.
