Trying out some embellishments

I've made yards and yards of white satin piping for the edges. On all the edges of these three samples, I have wrapped the piping with either copper/metallic yarn or gold ribbin. I've also used underlays of either gold or copper lame under some of the Battenburg lace motifs. I think the copper might show up better at a distance which might be best for this stole. I do like the subtlety of the gold however.

Do you have a preference?

    I don't think I've ever seen a copper colour as part of a liturgical garment - could be intriguing or distracting. I prefer the gold.
