It's been a long time since I started a topic in Craftster, but here goes! I've started making lots of pieces using LEDs, and thought I'd share one of my new designs - Jellyfish!

These are made of leather (metallic teal and white) backed in wool felt, and are lit with color-changing LEDs. Tentacles are dyed ribbon (sold in a skein for knitting) and sparkly, ruffled elastic. I make the lenses myself, out of scratched-up scrap acrylic, using a blowtorch, a homemade form, and a band saw. I do all the cutting, soldering, sewing, you name it! They are mounted on backs that allow them to be work as hair clips or brooches interchangeably.

I hope you like them! Thanks for looking!  Grin
