Felting Friday

Here's what's going on in the world of poking sharp needles into felt:


I love the color of this vintage ceramic flower.  The leaves were broken off long ago.  I always intended to do some elaborate beadwork around the flower, but the designs didn't work.  Felting does, don't you think?


The piece of mica on the left is extremely fragile, so I knew it needed a soft home.  Its shape reminded me of a wing.  So, I traced the "wing" onto a piece of felt to make a pair of wings.  The little face in the center looks very satisfied.  So am I.

 
This is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry I've made recently.  Talk about bright and colorful!  And trimmed in black it makes it wearable with so much, in any season.  Plus, the black frames all that color.

Yeah, I think I'm in love with adding felting to jewelry.
