A beautiful example of felt beads in jewelry! Pictured here is one of my favorites! It's the Haparanda from Madame Bijoux, an Australian indie designer.

Felt Beaded Rings -- Sculptural and Fabulous 

felt bead rings by Chris Rom and Geoff Buddie

Wow! These are so cool. They're from Chris Rom and Geoff Buddie, a husband and wife team. Their work has been exhibited at Velvet da Vinci Art Gallery in San Francisco!

From the idea stages through the actual creation and execution of the work we draw on each other's strengths for technical and aesthetic excellence. Hand felted wool and hand sculpted stoneware are the main elements we have chosen to express in our vision. The transformation that occurs in the construction of the felt is magical. Boiling water and soap are added to loose wool fibers encouraging little barbs on the fibers to relax and open. Agitating the wool causes the fibers to bind to one another. As a result the fabric shrinks and becomes dense and thick. Later the fabric is put into an acid bath on the stovetop and dyed to the desired color.

Felt Bead Bracelet -- Colorful 

Felt Bead Bracelet by thefunkyfelter

Etsy is the greatest online site for finding beautiful and creative handcrafted items such as this one!

This fun bubble bracelet was handmade with 100% wool beads. A combination of feltmaking techniques was used to create the multi-colored beads. Colors include orange, blue, blue-green, purple, and hot pink.

Unlike other wool bead bracelets, this bracelet is made from half beads that are dome shaped. This allows the bracelet to sit comfortably flush with your wrist. Each bead is approximately 0.75 inch (2 cm) in diameter and sits 0.5 inch (1.27 cm) high. The bracelet base is a quality silver plated metal with a snap lock closure. It is approximately 8 inches (20 cm) in length. The bracelet was assembled using the industrial strength craft glue E6000 for durability and wear.

This is from thefunkyfelter and sold for $22.00.
