New necklace prototypes - at last!

Well, it's taken me a while (after the build-up to the craft fair in May, I couldn't face anymore whip-stitching for a good long while!) but I've finally finished a couple of new necklace prototypes.

Introducing 'Carnivale'

and 'Mer' ~!

Carnivale's felt is made from rainbow coloured silk throwsters waste, silk ribbon, cotton nepps and silk fibre, embellished with glass beads and hand embroidery.

Mer's felt is made from a beautiful turquoise mixed fibre batt from ArtemisArtemis - including fibres such as wool roving, bamboo, angelina and angora, which has then again been embellished with glass beads and hand embroidery.

No metal backing for the necklaces this time - just felt, so they are very lightweight.

Carnivale measures 8cm long by 2.5cm wide, on 45cm of chain...

...and Mer measures 9cm long by 2.5cm wide, again on 45cm of chain.

I'm definitely liking the curved shape, and I've added lots of wonderful new fibres to my stash recently from the likes of fibrespacesupplies, therainbowgirl, flightsofwhimzy, thredfairy, lalafelt, All Twisted Up, and Jacinta Leishman, so I'm feeling quite inspired to try a few more of these in both sizes :D
