Tied fabric jewellery

Friday 30 January 2009 Well, I've had a bit of a play with some of the tied fabric lengths I made the other day, and with the ticking one I made a long necklace to go with a contrasting wet-felted one. I think they look really neat together, to wear with jeans or a summer blouse. I've put it in my Etsy shop just to see what interest there is.

The orangey spirals below were made with some batik-printed fabric and hand-dyed thread, (from SassaLynne) attached to a cotton cord to wear as a long pendant necklace.

I'm also playing with these batik-printed fabric cords and some felt I made a couple of weeks ago, that had pieces of velvet incorporated in it. At the moment it's sitting on my work table with some beads waiting to be finished. It somehow reminds me of Marrakesh, casbahs, Atlas Mountains though I've never been there!
