This photo shows off the beads better than the following photo:
Which gives a better sense of size. One of these days I will replace my half mannequin and will be able to get photos that will show how the necklace would drape.
Lots of work to put this all together. I’m pleased with the outcome.
So incredibly beautiful! Each bead is a work of art itself!
I love the tiny beads going around each bead on the cord, too. Thank you for giving this its own thread!!
Oh, wow! The trees on the beads… !!!
This might be my favorite one of your pieces now!! It’s absolutely stunning.
This is utterly amazing. Beautifully done.
I’m so thrilled it received its own thread! Even the name is mysterious! I hope this baby makes it into your book. The world needs to see it!
I’m still hoping to do another book, but currently I’m teaching myself new skills.
I haven’t really given much thought to which pieces I would include beyond that there needs to be a variety of skill levels.
My son considers this to be one of the best pieces I’ve made! I’m pleased!
I can see why! Were these also wet felted? Or were they needle felted?
The longer I look at the beads, the more it’s like getting pulled into another world, which the wearer gets to carry around. I love the shapes, shades and textures of everything, too.
Needle felted to control size, shape & pattern.
Wet felted to increase durability.
WOW. I am in love. This is amazing. I love the delicate interplay of the contrasting wools on the bulb parts. Also love the delicate detail of beading on the “chain”. Fantastic!
