fibre friday: custom work

wire and fibre pendant
wire and fibre pendant: flower

Summer isn't really the season for making much in the way of felted fibre pieces but this one is an exception. It was a custom commission from the beginning of May and is, so far, unclaimed.
It's a tinned copper wire base with embroidered and felted merino roving. The centre is a new technique - I've needle felted a pale blue 'bud' holding in a strand of white synthetic yarn.
The whole piece was wet felted to stabilise and is now ready for its new home.
Come down and say "Hi" at the Car Free festival on Main this Sunday (see the 'where to shop' tab at the top of this page for details).

PS: there are some other wire and fibre pendants available here :)
