Wedding Belles

My Wedding Belles Collection is small and represents somewhat of a departure from my usual work.  Wet felting wool is something I’ve enjoyed for years, but usually do it on a larger scale than this.  I think I started making little balls and couldn’t stop.

My work is done in the basement at my lovely workbench. After fracturing my patella, I couldn’t easily get down there. Thus, I looked for pieces I could do upstairs and on the couch while I healed.

The Wedding Belles Felt Ball Bracelet is a combination of white felt balls, natural white pearls and crystal-like beads on a sterling silver chain with a toggle closure.

The Wedding Belles Felt Ball necklace coordinates beautifully with the above bracelet. It is 2 sterling silver chains laden with white felt balls and white natural pearls. Star-shaped spacers accent the felt balls.

The Wedding Belles Convertible Necklace is really quite unusual.  Each of 5 strands has a very tiny lobster claw at each end, allowing for a great deal of customization. One or more chains can be removed as desired.  Change the strands, cross them, twist them, its all up to you.

I am a Denver based metalsmith who works in a call center by day, sells jewelry by night, and fills the rest of the waking hours practicing parkour.
