This is a quick post to show a couple of pics of a limited variety of my felting that is on display at Beerwah Library for two weeks.
If you aren’t in the area but would like to visit the library, the address is:

It is lovely to have the opportunity to display my work locally. I am a member of the Glasshouse Country Arts Trail and we have several weeks available to display members’ works. Ilia Starkovsky is also displaying some of his photographic art, and Bronwyn Hill and/or Melanie Gray Augustin will also be bringing showing some of their work this fortnight.

After making the three cuff/bracelets, I got all fired up to make some other, smaller felt items.
Loving the blend of blues in the turquoise felt cuff, I used the same piece of felt to cut out smaller pieces that I rolled up and stitched together with embroider’s cotton, then added glass seed beads.
The larger felt roll was turned into a necklace – I used a pre-bought turquoise necklace and also added extra blue beads that I kept in place with crimps.
The smaller felt rolls were teamed up with some lovely larger blue beads and turned into a pair of earrings.

This is my first ‘official’ set of jewellery/accessories but I am stoked at how they’ve turned out. They really look pretty sitting together as a set. I’m very inspired to make some more.
YouTube was a great help in working out how to actually put the jewellery pieces together to make something that looked wearable.
I’ll be busy again with some accessories and jewellery sets this Saturday, for Sunday’s local craft market.
