The Art of Felting

Jan 11, 2012

I’ve been play­ing around with sev­er­al new medi­ums late­ly and felt­ing has been the lat­est one. It has always intrigued me and I find tak­ing wool rov­ing and shap­ing it into some­thing is quite relax­ing, that is unless your my dad. Then, well… it’s not so relax­ing. I taught him and mom how to do it dur­ing their Christ­mas vis­it and he was not too impressed. He’s decid­ed to stick to wood­carv­ing. But I do have a star and a bird that they both com­plet­ed that I’ll show you tomor­row. They did a great job.

I decid­ed to take this felt­ed heart and cov­er it with small scraps of stamped muslin, linen and burlap then accent them with vin­tage but­tons, pearls and charms. I attached two jump rings at the top of the heart then attached two dif­fer­ent styles of vin­tage rosary beads to fin­ish off the neck­lace. I plan on giv­ing this to a cer­tain some­one who I’ve chat­ted with every sin­gle day since room­ing with her in Mykonos, Greece, dur­ing the Cocoa Daisy Des­ti­na­tions: Mykonos Retreat back in Sep­tem­ber 18 — 27 of 2010.

And I’m hap­py to say, it’s almost time for Maya Road CHA‑W sneak peeks to start and I can­not wait to share. Wait until you see what the design team has cre­at­ed with all the new prod­ucts. You are going to swoon like crazy. Since Car­o­line post­ed this pho­to already I snagged it from her post to share with you.

This new trim has me gid­dy!!! It looks just like vin­tage rhine­stone jew­el­ry pieces you would find in a thrift shop or antique store. You bet I did the hap­py dance when I saw these in per­son.

Ok, back to work for me… it’s crazy here right now.
