Felt Jewelry

It's Felt Jewelry! It's hand-felted, handcrafted and wearable art that gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling! I am blown away at all the beautiful hand-felted jewelry I've seen on the internet.

There are so many talented indie designers today who are crafting hand-felted jewelry. In this lens you'll find a nice a cross-section of some of the best handcrafted felt jewelry that I've found.

Pictured here is a die-cut felt jewelry creation by Lily Yung, a Toronto print-maker and jeweller of non-precious material ... She began making jewellery in non-precious materials in 1986.

She has been using textile techniques in wires and beads to transform them into exquisite jewellery since 1994. Her work has been exhibited across Canada and internationally.

Felt Necklace -- Karin Wagner

Felt Necklace Karin Wagner
This is truly a beautiful work of art by Karin Wagner. It was spotted at Patina Gallery.

She makes each piece by hand, giving them a unique charm. She creates accessories, bags and scarves, always ornate with floral motifs. If chance led her to felt, she is not new to creation.

'Working with felt is simple. All you need is sheep wool, water, soap and your hands. It's wonderful to transform these long strips of wool into three-dimensional objects, only by moving your fingers! I try to invent shapes as light as possible.'

She manages to transform this rough material into objects of aerial lightness, very well designed, incredibly delicate, in a range of soft and tender colours.

Anette stared as an apprentice in a seamstress shop. Then, she studied textile design in Maastrich Holland. After graduation, she opened a silkscreen studio in Bonn, Germany to print her designs and introduce them to the public.

Shortly after her first exhibition in Bonn she began to work with felt. She had found the material fascinating since she had been introduced to the concept of textiles as jewelry in Holland. Within a short time she had produced some wonderful designs in bracelets and earrings. This was the beginning of her current collection of contemporary jewelry combining felt, stainless steel, sterling silver and freshwater pearls.
