Thanks for your interest!! I've sent private messages to any asking about the class. Smiley

Thanks!! Wink

I actually did end up making another after this one



And also took a photo of the necklaces on the mannequin to show more what they look like when worn:



I expect I will be making more of these. I keep coming up with ideas!  Cheesy

Thank you so much!!

I keep thinking up new ideas to use with the tapers - lol!! I suspect that when time allows I will be making more. The class is pretty much put together, but I still have to proof and tweak it. Currently I'm doing a painting commission so by the time I get back to proof the class, I'll have (I hope) a bit of objectivity. Feels good to be painting!!

I have sufficient number of examples and photos that I should finally be able to complete putting my class together. I've really enjoyed making these, but I am ready to move on!

Materials: Merino fiber, beads, needle and thread, button.
286  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Yet another tapered rope necklace variation on: March 02, 2012 08:22:41 AM
I'm still working on putting this class together and inbetween recreating some of the piece I have already made and need to photograph step by step, I need to just do something new and different. This is my latest experiment:

Thanks so much!!!  And thanks for the heads up about Mr X Stitch - I totally would have missed that and it was quite a pleasant surprise to see this piece written up!!

I still haven't finished getting the class related to these tapered rope foundations completed Sad My husband was in the hospital all this last week and we've also been dealing with heating issues. Hubby came home yesterday evening so now if I can just get some heat - I can get back to work!!

To get any consistant shape - cylinder, cone, cube - whatever, it's mostly a matter of working evenly. I have done some wet felting, but there seems to be less control of the fiber. I wet felted a rope for a necklace once and just didn't like the way it looked or draped. With needle felting I feel totally in control of the shape.

Thanks!!!  Cheesy  Cheesy

I had hoped to have made a lot of progress on the class by this time, but we've been dealing with heating problems and it has been too cold in my work space. Hopefully this week I will manage to catch up!

THank you so much!!!  Grin  Grin  Grin

I've always favored asymmetrical designs - I just find them more interesting!

Wowzah!! Thanks so much!!!   Cheesy  Cheesy Cheesy

The beads are sewn into place. The spirals are felted into place.

I'm still working on putting the tapered rope class together, but I have to take some time off to do a painting commission. It'll probably still be a couple of weeks before I have this altogether.
