Felted wool, sequins and embroidery on a string

Rainbow jewelry
Come visit iHanna’s blog and get a bit of the rainbow… Hehe.

If you feel gray...If you feel a bit gray in your everyday life, maybe you need a sparkly boost of color? Put on your best jewelry and shine, this works special wonders if it’s a necklace that you’ve done yourself! Those creative gems are the best self-esteem-boosts ever, I know because every time I put on my own handknitted socks I feel warmer. Anyway…

Happy Me!

I’ve wet felted these wool balls all by myself as I’ve already mentioned – and now decorated them with sequins, beads and small embroidery stitches before stringing them together into a rainbow-necklace! I also added glass beads that I’ve bought from China (on Ebay) and love, plus two large metal beads on both sides (from Panduro).

See all that? It makes me smile!

I have only wore my felted bead necklace for these photos, but as you can understand I’m very very happy about it!

    This necklace is so so wonderful! It reminds me in some ways of Andrea Scher’s superhero jewelry, because she used bright colors, too. I love how the necklace makes you smile… I think it would make me smile, too… just seeing it on someone else. Take care & have a wonderful weekend!

  20. omg – these are so fab! thanks for directing me to this archived post (and the others) about felting. i’m having a gas trying it…and appreciate you sharing your own adventures with me.

    How do you sew the sequins on without the thread showing?
    Thank you!

    • iHanna says:

      JoAnne, I used a small bead on top of each sequin, and that sewn on bead holds it in place so there is no need to sew the sequin down too. I hope that helps. Take care!
