dangled felts with button
I was commissioned to make these brooches for a shop in Hebden Bridge. The great thing about this shop is that they buy the jewellery from me, rather than having it on sale, or return.
The felt bases of the brooches are made by wetting the merino wool-tops, then rolling them round, and round in your hands, until felted. The 'dangles' are made from hemp, and various reclaimed, and bought beads.
I then chose a pretty button to go in the centre, and sewed the whole thing together with a brooch pin on the back.
I've still got 3 more left to make!
If anyone would like to buy one, these in particular, are reserved, but i can make them in any colour or style - email me at; firstname.lastname@example.org
