I've been doing a lot of experiments lately for making needle felted necklaces. Eventually I will turn all this knowledge into a class. This is my latest experiment. It was a bit tricky to piece it all together, but I think it came out nicely.

This is great!  How did you piece it together?  Sewn?

Thanks!!!

The difficulty in piecing it together is the number of parts and the relatively small work surface (I work on a clover brush mat). I ended up laying the whole necklace out and arranging the parts on a piece of felt over some cardboard - used my needles to tack the pieces together enough to be able to carefully move them. To really secure them I used a combination of needle felting and some hidden sewing.

That's stunning, I'm in love. Another reason I need to learn to needle felt! I think this is the piece that pushed me over the edge! Thanks for posting, and I hope you enjoy wearing that beautiful work of art!

Thanks!!! =^..^=

I plan on getting started on another variation using these techniques today - not quite sure what it will be. I'll have to check and see if I have posted here the other experiments I have been doing lately.
