Celestial Felt Earrings
I made these for a contest at The Crafty Retailer. If you have a pair that have incorporated at least one fiber element and would like to enter, send a photo to email@example.com.
I created felt from alpaca fiber - it gives the earrings a great background texture. I then embroidered a sun on one and a moon on the other, using silk threads. Each earring has an embroidered silk star, seed beads and a larger faceted bead. I hid the stitching & knots on the back with another layer of felt then needle felted them together. They are hung with antique patina brass ear wires. I hope you like them - I had a blast making them. :D
