11  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Orange Yellow Black Needle Felted Necklace on: October 08, 2014 08:56:37 AM
This is actually the second variation on this style of necklace. My first version was in greens - just nice by subtle color variations and no embroidery. For this one I decided to try some bolder colors and some simple patterns with embroidery floss. I had to go looking for beads since I didn't have anything that really worked. I was glad to find the black, glossy beads. They offer a great texture contrast with the fiber.

I still haven't decided if I should call these shapes "petals" or "leaves" or what - maybe you can help me decide?

Worked late and was up again around 4:30am

Both are probably about 2.7"

THanks!!!  Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

no form/mold - just making them by hand. Started another yesterday evening. Hope to finish it this morning.

An inspired by polymer project. This is a great shape for combining different colors, designs and embellishment. I expect I will be making many variations using this form in the next few weeks.

Thank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy 

Earrings would be a very good addition (and I recently invested in the tools to make my own earring wires) - I'll have to get on that!!

I don't think the spikes would make a good bracelet unless they were much smaller and limited in length - perhaps different "beads", but in the same colors and making use of the same designs would coordinate enough to make an ensemble. Wink

I do need to find myself a better reed mat for wet felting - I'm using a placemat that I found at the dollar store and it works, but it has some flat sections in it that were dyed red which bleeds - hasn't discolored any of my fibers, but my hands have sometimes looked like I had rubbed them raw!! LOL!!

Here are some of the other color combinations I have tried - currently doing more spikes in the green/cream range of colors. 
- Tried to upload a photo, but it doesn't seem to show up. Sorry.

Have been working on this (and variations) this past week.

Used very "tribal" colors for this particular necklace, but have been doing experiments with a lot of different color combinations. Not certain that I will spend the time to make enough for necklaces of all the variations, but probably will do at least one more.

Nice!!!  =^..^=

After the soap is all gone, if it hasn't felted into one piece, you could probably turn it into a coin purse!!

Thanks you very much!!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

It was an interesting project, not just because of the tummy wrinkles, but because I had to capture the sort of anxious look that Frankie often has. I do like those tummy wrinkles!!! LOL!!!
