Work in Progress






These gorgeous wooden beads which I bought from eandebungalow's etsy shop are waiting to be joined up with some wet-felted beads I made. I wasn't sure what colour roving to use, but plumped in the end for something lighter than the wood, as the rich tones really need to be shown off. When I was felting the beads I squished them a bit flatter on the top, so that they echo the little spacer beads. The wooden beads are so silky soft and they remind me of mussel-shells in their shape. I hope I can do them justice in the necklace I'm making. The finished item will probably go into my etsy shop , if I'm happy with it!

Oh what a lovely surprise this morning to find all your great welcoming comments! It's very encouraging after all the gnashing of teeth I did to get this blog up and running - 'steep learning curve' doesn't begin to describe it!!
