Wool As An Accessory

felted earring with sunstone bead and stirling silver ear wire

These earrings are  made of wool.  They start with a tuft of wool and are shaped into a tear drop and then needle felted until smooth and finished looking.   It is super hard to get both earrings to look-alike because you must start with exact same amount of roving, shape the same and finish the same etc.  It is not like clay, but there are similarities.  Anyway, looking forward to the Market Day Fiber Fair at the Wood County Fair Grounds in March (see right for details).  I am striving to have more fiber than last year and even working on some cute sheep earrings made out of paper.  It’s funny how I am now working on Spring ideas when it is not even Christmas!  But I am happily inspired:)
