These are some pieces of felted jewelry that I have been doing the past days. They are mostly needle felted and some have little touches of wet felting.

I made some rings. The biggest is one the red ones, you can see how huge it is at the 'action' pic. I would not wear something so big, but is for a friend who loves things that big




I made this light necklace for my sister (she loves green and pink)


A flower cuff


I love making jewelry and work a lot with glass beads, etc, but now I have been doing many felted things, it is so relaxing, light and addicting  Cheesy

Very Cool !  I think your sis will really like that necklace.  Would you mind pointing out which pieces are wet felted and which are needle felt.  I am just getting into felting and would love to know what processes work best for creating different things.  Thanks

Inspiring - thank you for your comments. About your question:
- The rings are all needle felted
- The necklace is a combination: The 'cord' part is wet felted. The pendant needle felted.
- The cuff is a combination too: The flowers and leaf part were needle felted (individually and then I needle felted them together), and the green 'cuff' part that goes around the wrists is wet-felted.

I don't know if it is just my imagination but I find wet felted items to be a little softer (maybe because they are less fuzzy?), but in the other hand I find it easier to create forms with the needle (besides the sad fact of me getting an allergy when wet-felting) and I love needle felting, so I mostly needle felt, but I think both methods give beautiful results.

Oh CraftyZary, wonderful talent, great color and blends.  Love the drama of the huge ring - what a contrast to the sweetness and light of some of the others.  The way you are combining the wet and dry pieces is wonderful, also enjoy the way you are using the colors and blending.  Thanks so much for putting these lovely pieces up for all to see.

Z, those are fabulous!

I wear my ring all the time and I still love it.
During the last few weeks I've been working in a kindergarten classroom and I showed the children how to felt (Gee I wish I took pics)
I wore the flower pin you made me that day and all the children were ooh-ing and ahh-ing and wanted to touch it. After class a few of the girls came up and said "We really like your flower Miss Elli,  it's so beautiful!"

hehe, they were so cute. Cheesy

What I'm starting to notice, is that over the past 6 months or so, quite a few of the felters here (including myself and GraceOblivious) who are originally needle-felters or a wet-felters are learning new techniques and blending the two types of felting. I have a feeling we're going to see a whole heap of newly inspired results from mixing the techniques over 2006  Smiley

Wow, your jewelry is beautiful!  I love the swirl in the pendant.  Do you sell your peices?  Trade perhaps?
