41  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Re: Wire and Fiber Brooch on: May 02, 2016 06:06:54 AM
Thank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Wire wrapping - on the burnt sienna wire you can see spaces between some of the coils which shouldn't be there. Funny thing is, the finer wire is easier to wrap than the thicker gauge wire, but it is easier to get that tight wrap with the thicker gauge.

I need to get back to a bobbin necklace, but I have been enjoying these brooches. Sketched out several more variations in construction last night. Will see what wins out when I get to my craft room - bobbins or brooches!! Wink =^..^=

The decorations were punched out of a felt cloth I made the day before.
I do need to improve my wire wrapping skills! Wink =^..^=

Thank you!!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I really like the contrast of metal with fiber! =^..^=

Thank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Punches arrived and I'm very pleased!! Currently I'm only interested in using 3 of the shapes that are in the set. Some of the punches are sharper than others. I think I will need to learn how to sharpen them as well. Certainly makes cutting the disk shapes a lot faster!! I am making my own felt cloth so that the colors match perfectly and it's all 100% Merino in use!
Working on another but it will take a while before I can complete it. =^..^=

THANKS!!!

That's certainly made my day!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I have found a set of punches for leather work that were decently priced. Hope to be giving them a try tomorrow!! =^..^=

Thank you!!!! It was a very interesting project and I have more ideas that I want to try within the same overall concept.

I'm considering investing in a punch for the disks. There's enough labor in them just in creating them and then wet felting them prior to trimming to correct size. =^..^=

I've been meaning for well over a year to work on this idea. Will probably make up another prototype to refine construction and possibilities before putting it together as a class. =^..^=
