Baronial Badge Project
19th Feb, 2006
His Excellency, Gilchrist Morgan, Baron of Mordenvale, asked me to co-ordinate the design and making of six badges for the Baronial Guard. These were to be of the Mordenvale arms.
Of late, the Barony has taken on a decidedly German flavour, so I looked to this area for inspiration for the shape of the shield. This is what I came up with, based on a 15th/16thC shield shape.
The material for the badge are red and green silk, with a green cotton backing fabric. The design will be worked in imitation Japanese gold thread, in surface couching.

This is the bage at four hours work. The chevron is taking a little longer than expected, but it is going.
