New addition to Winter necklace collection

I just love the metallic lurex thread I’m working with at the moment for these necklaces, such wonderful reflective qualities and it seems to complement all colours of wool fibre.

With both wet felting and needle felting techniques to create each individual bead, the crochet of each metal ring, embroidery embellishment and finally creating an even thickness of felt thread with ‘ball and loop’ to secure – it’s not a quick process.  Each felt bead also requires drying time before it can be decorated and, of course, as each necklace is unique, I spend many hours deciding on the final design…..all this involves lots of coffee, biscuits (sometimes cake), Radio 4 in daylight hours and late films from midnight onwards!

Hope you like the latest design in the making
