Although I haven't been doing much felt making at the moment, I am making jewellery. I love the way you can create a piece of jewellery and wear it the next day. Above is a bracelet I made for my friend from Canada who has just been visiting England for the first time for three years. I used amazonite, mother of pearl, labradorite, botswana agate, shell and zebra jasper, all in neutral shades.
The necklace is for me and is completely different from anything I have made before. Usually, I have much more delicate designs, but I was trying to make a chunkier piece. Initially, I tried to make an assymmetric design, but it just wasn't me at all, so I had to revert back to symmetry. This design has a lot of different gems in it; lapis lazuli, keishi pearl, jade, blue-green jasper, shell, fluorite, labradorite, turquoise and kyanite. I hope it will complement a lovely blue-green cardigan that I wear for work. I am going to make an amethyst necklace next, leaving the wire showing at the back and maybe even plaited.
Incidentally, just to let my lovely followers know, I am having trouble with the comments on my blog. For some reason, they seem to disappear and just show a white screen when you click on them. I am hoping to find out what is happening and get it sorted as soon as I can. (Technology, eh? Brilliant when it works and a complete pain when it doesn't!)
