HAND FELTED JEWELRY AND BEADS: 25 Artful Designs, Carol Huber Cypher.
Felt-bead jewelry is fashionable! It’s showing up on runways, specialty stores, and galleries around the globe. Hand Felted Jewelry and Beads offers a contemporary and artistic approach to this popular craft—and then takes it a step beyond through beaded embellishment.
No other hand felting book is as comprehensive, as Hand Felted Jewelry and Beads includes both needle-felting and wet-feltmaking techniques covering flat, flat with a resist, 3-dimensional, use of armatures and mediums, color, inclusions, shape, and texture.
And, these techniques are taught step-by-step in a friendly and accessible manner through the creation of beautiful objects of personal adornment. You’ll learn how to make the felted equivalent of lampworked beads, turquoise focal beads, mokume gane look-alikes, and so much more.
Try your hand at the Carved and Beaded Bangle, the unforgettable Flower Lariat, Compositions in Felt and Glass (strung necklaces and bracelets), or the imaginative Felted Bead Diva’s Necklace.
The first-time felter will be guided into this creative and fulfilling fiber art while the seasoned feltmaker will find inspiration, new tips and tricks to add to their repertoire; everyone will relish the gallery of inspirational pieces. Let your imagination soar and get felting!
