I’ve currently got a thing for pebbles so thought it would be nice to create a Pebble Necklace. This has been wet Felted using grey and lichen superfine Merino and white Silk. It features hand stitched Colonial knots and is finished with a bronze coloured metal chain and fastener.
During a (rare) tidy up in my studio last month I came across some sample pieces of coloured acrylic paper with wonderful textures.
The reason I had hung on to them in the first place is because they are so beautiful, but I couldn’t see the point in putting them back in the drawer if I didn’t have a use for them……so I needed to find one! The result is this collection of wet felted, hand embroidered pendants with acrylic inserts.
I’ve also been making solid necklaces and chunky bangles, again incorporating the acrylic papers.
I’m a big fan of recycling, rather than throwing, and I’m now on a mission to find more things I can use as inclusions in my felting.
