New work

New work

“Wire flower pin”, sterling silver, copper, felted wool, silk.

Lately I find myself fully immersed into making new work and experimenting with different ideas. I’ve been focusing more into making and less into photographing, editing and posting, which is also a big part of the whole process. But I couldn’t avoid it anymore and so tonight a massive upload of new pieces had to take place. Hope that you’ll enjoy them!

I got carried away with the wire flower forms that I’ve been playing with and made a stick pin, a ring and a pair of earrings. I added felted wool, a piece of silk and stitched them in the center of the metal construction.

Here’s another piece using felted wool, silk and various ribbons.

I had a lot of fun with the cast eucalyptus seedpods. First, I made a square wavy band and soldered a cluster of three pods on the side. I tied a piece of teal thread, reminiscent of a little bouquet from nature.

Then, I made a simpler -and easier to wear version- using only one pod as a focal point. The shape of the band is what I think that makes it more interesting.

I also decided to add a few more options for my cube earrings, the wavy bangles and the circle resin bracelets:

I absolutely love the felted necklace.  Went to the quilt show this weekend and so many vendors, but picked up some felt balls!  Do you make your own?  I have a show tomorrow and maybe things will settle down a bit after that.  I haven’t been able to flickr lately!  Looks like you are making all sort of things. Beautiful Maria!

Thank you Stacey! I felt my own balls/flowers etc, using a combination of wet and needle felting techniques. I always enjoy felting when the weather gets more chilly grin
I’m preparing for an open studio and so I’ve been making all sorts of things. I hadn’t had much time to flickr either. Hope that we’ll be catching up soon. Best of luck for your show!!!
