Hi there,
I am new to posting.  I have been lurking forever and loooove this site!  I have recently fell in love with needle felting and wanted to get some feedback on a necklace that I made.  I haven't read how to upload a pic yet.  So, instead I'll give ya link to my blog site that has a pic of it there.  Could ya take a gander and let me know what ya think?  Positive or negative would be greatly appreciated. 
Thanks so much!

That is absolutly wonderful.

I think it's gorgeous and I love necklaces with the spaces between the beads because then all the attention is on the beauticious beads which in this case are evn more beauticious because they are felted!

About how large is the square bead?

Thanks so much!  I really can't believe how much can be done with felt.  What a fantastic medium!!   I have adored each and every felt creation on craftster.

As far as my necklace goes, the beads are about the size of an average finger tip. and the pendant is about 1" by 1 1/2 ".

Oh quick question about wetting the final beads....  Should one use a certain type of soap?  Is there a better kind to use?

that is literally one of the most lovely things i have seen in a long time. i love how simple and elegant it is. i sometimes struggle with the wool=hippie part of felt. very well done.

as for wet felting, i use plain ol' dish soap.  Grin
