This series of jewelry was born from a desire to combine wool felt with other media in unexpected ways including sterling silver and other natural fibers.
I am extremely inspired by the ethnic textile traditions of central and south America and also of central Asia. Every part of the felt in these pieces are completely handmade using traditional wet felt techniques. I am also fascinated with surface textures and embellishment that help convey certain motifs and enliven the form.
This necklace is extra long and measures 56 inches in circumference. It falls 20 inches from the neck. This necklace is comprised of 25 hand wet felted beads made from merino and other various wools. I have embroidered the beads with cotton thread. The beads are woven with an Irish linen thread that is coated with beeswax. There are also 2 hand dyed silk and various mixed media pom poms also woven into the necklace. There is also a silver chain with discs also woven into the form.
The weaving is attached to a suede neck band and two handmade sterling silver hoops.
