Having a huge stash of stuff to create mixed media art, I've been playing with a few different ideas for jewelry....
Heres my latest, made for lapoli in the IYP 9 swap.  She's a fiber goddess so I wanted to make something including fiber.  This was my first attempt at felting, which was alot of fun! 


Close up....its a mass of the same roving in the choker part, wired on with some blue silk roving, copper wire and beads.  This shows the gorgeous green colour a bit better.


Fun with patina solution.....for my Shop the Swap shop



Love to hear what ya'll think!

That necklace is wonderful - looks like it's got a really interesting texture as well, I want to reach through my laptop and touch it!

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!

Thanks!  The roving necklace turned out waaay different than I had planned, at the last minute I had to needle felt the loop and ball closure on the ends, I had originally planned a wire hook deal but was foiled by lack of supplies.  the bottom ones are plastic doll parts, the arm has a watch tin glued to the top, the hand has a wood knob.  They were both treated to a 2 part verdigris paint finish and wire wrapped.....the eye is a charm I found somewhere Smiley 

Right now I'm having too much fun swapping to open a shop (other than the Shop the Swap Wink)  Its on my list of things to do this year.  which is almost over...
