The finished beads - and linky love

I did manage to make a lovely pair of earrings, and a not so lovely heart pendant with my felted beads. The heart has potential with the right embellishments. I really need to stop attempting to work on things at 2 am ;-) I have a bracelet started as well, but that will have to be for another day.

Stacy made a comment this morning on yesterday's post regarding wetting them. That's actually what I did last night. They felt a little too squishy, so I finished the process with wet felting. More on wet felting below.

I found a great tutorial on knitty for wet felting :

Youtube of course is also an excellent resource for all sorts of demos and tutorials - search for felting tutorials

I've also found a lovely selection of really nice felted jewelry by artists - check em out!

Then of course check out the rest of the stuff on

That should keep you occupied for a while ;-)

I'm glad you enjoyed wet felting!
I need to find my felting supplies and get back at it!
