hello all! :-)

I have been a lurker for quite some time here on craftster and decided it were time I officially join . I can't tell you how much all of your projects have inspired me. You all RAWK. Like a hurricane.

as for me ..i'm a looooooooooong time crafter , and my style is VERY eclectic ranging from very pretty , to really silly. It all  depends on my mood. There aint no shame in this game..* laughs*

My most recent obsession has been with needle felted beads . I love mixing em in with lampwork , gemstone, and vintage glass.  Here's some of my most recent . Thanks so much for looking ..and I look forward to spending a LOT of time with you fine crafty folks:-)

O.M.G. those are amazing! i love the layered one! i once made some felt balls, but they didn't stay together and were fairly squishy, yours look firmer and really sturdy, how did you do that?!  ALso can i ask what they are all beaded on to?
thanks!

I love these!  I never really liked the look of the usual felted bead jewelry- just not my style- but these are unique and beautiful.  Thanks for sharing and welcome!

Just keeep on rollig them ....it takes forever , but worth it . as for what they are strung on ?? headpins!!!!!  seriously! 

Tip : I  "ream" the felted bead with un un bent paper clip...work all the way through the fibers , then once out the other side, I push my paper clip "reamer" back through with my headpin. This makes for a straight mounting , and keeps the headpins from bending all wonky. It's perfect everytime! (  a vintage hat pin also works as a reamer , but can be tricky as the diameter isn't  as wide , and I prefer the extra 'tunnel' room :-)   )
