Jaceron Purl

Example of jaceron purl. Example of jaceron purl.

Jaceron purl is a metal thread made from tightly coiled wires. It looks like a strand of gold pearls. It is very similar to pearl purl, but stretchier. In fact, it is sometimes classed as pearl purl.

It is normal to stretch the purl slightly in order to make it easier to couch it down onto the ground material. This type of metal thread is often used to outline designs or, in combination with other couched threads, as a filling thread for designs, such as leaves.
