New Felted Merino Wool Earrings



Recently I've been experimenting with hand felting merino wool, with varying degrees of success! I've been making multi-coloured felt beads to use in necklace and earring designs, and while my wet-felting technique is definitely improving, I'm finding it's not as easy as it sounds to create uniformly sized beads! So in the meantime, I've created some earrings using beads that have been handmade from 100% merino wool by Meli of StemellinaSupplies using wet and needle felting techniques.

The wool balls are very lightweight so the earrings are very comfortable to wear. Some of my earrings are strictly one-of-a-kind, while I've made some designs in very small limited editions - but they're all bright and funky, and just that little bit different! Here are some of my new earring designs, now available from my Etsy shop:
