I had picked out these colors and I had intended to do the split taper before I started working on this, but the rest just all sort of "happened". =^..^=

How are the beads attached? Did you individually attach each one? Are the  spirals drawn on afterward or is that part of the felting pattern?

Modified because, yes, I can type.

Wowzah!! Thanks so much!!!   Cheesy  Cheesy Cheesy

The beads are sewn into place. The spirals are felted into place.

I'm still working on putting the tapered rope class together, but I have to take some time off to do a painting commission. It'll probably still be a couple of weeks before I have this altogether.

I had hoped to have made a lot of progress on the class by this time, but we've been dealing with heating problems and it has been too cold in my work space. Hopefully this week I will manage to catch up!

This is INCREDIBLE! How do you needle felt such a perfectly cylindrical shape? I've tried before, and I gave up and decided that was mostly reserved for wet-felting.

Thanks so much!!!  And thanks for the heads up about Mr X Stitch - I totally would have missed that and it was quite a pleasant surprise to see this piece written up!!

I still haven't finished getting the class related to these tapered rope foundations completed Sad My husband was in the hospital all this last week and we've also been dealing with heating issues. Hubby came home yesterday evening so now if I can just get some heat - I can get back to work!!

To get any consistant shape - cylinder, cone, cube - whatever, it's mostly a matter of working evenly. I have done some wet felting, but there seems to be less control of the fiber. I wet felted a rope for a necklace once and just didn't like the way it looked or draped. With needle felting I feel totally in control of the shape.

I will be the 21st or 22nd person - to say how beautiful this is!
The shape would fit me perfectly! I have a tracheotomy scar at the base of my neck so I'm always on the lookout for a necklace to cover it.
BINGO - this is it!

(I am not a fan of asymmetrical - but I am willing to forget that little foible.)

Unfortunately I only know of one person who needle felts - but that makes it an opportunity for me to learn, right?

Thank you for showing this to the (craftster) world.
