I've been a busy bee lately.  Some of these are knit and felted, but they are still jewelry so I put them here.
 
This one is a knit cuff from organic cotton yarn.  The toggle is real horn, but the supplier assured me that it was shed naturally.  I came up with the pattern myself and did it in seed stitch so it would lie flat.   

I've been in cuff mode lately because I have a tattoo on my wrist and would like a fashionable way to cover it up for work  Wink

This one I call Pirate's cove.  I originally made it long with everything on it but the kitchen sink.  I later editted it down and like it much better this way.  Booty and Rum still not included.  te he he.


This bracelet I call sticks and stones because I think that the fresh water pearl beads are stick like and I used some semiprecious stones like rose quartz and tiger's eye. 


Finally, I present you with blue balls.  This necklace isn't painful though, I felted some blue pom poms and linked them together with antique brass chain as I did in the pirate's cove necklace.

Let me know what you think!
