Create stunning ganutell flower shapes and other passementerie projects with this versatile Petal and Leaf Jig set from Gina B which includes 20 petal and leaf patterns!
Ganutell (silk-wrapped wire flowers) and other forms of wired passementerie often include small shapes that are repeated, such as petals.
Traditional wire jigs have the holes for the pegs laid out in grids, which means that curved shapes often have ridges and points where they aren't wanted!
However, this jig has been designed with holes placed so that smoother curves than standard pegboards can be achieved, allowing for more naturalistic wire shapes.
- Clear top to hold patterns in place
- Four anti-slip silicone feet
- 1 x Petal and Leaf Jig:
- 20 x Patterns
- 1 x Organza Storage Bag

About Ganutell & Gina B
Ganutell is the name for small flowers created using a coiled wire. The word is derived from cannetile (French), cannotiglio (Italian), and canotilla (Spanish) which means 'coiled wire'.
In English, we call this wire perl, because it resembles a string of beads when tight. This type of flower has been made in Europe since at least the 15th century. They were widely used to decorate churches and shrines. Variations are still used in modern passementerie to create trimmings, and traditional church decorations are still made in Malta.
These modern designs, inspired by British flowers, make a pretty centrepiece or can be used individually in jewellery, tiaras and as embellishment.
