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!

  1. What a great folkloric necklace! I can see why you feel happy wearing it. Just the thing for a gray, rainy day!

  2. 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!

  3. En av de b?sta grejerna du bloggat om p? sistone, det ?r helt fantastiskt! Mycket bra att det ?r i ull ocks

  4. Amazingly beautiful texture and colours. You are multi-talented Hanna and have a wonderful sense of colour.

  5. 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.

    • 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!
