The theme for this year’s challenges is ‘Personal Items’.
So here’s the first challenge for felters, spinners, weavers, stitchers, knitters, crocheters and mixed media fibre artists …
…make a piece of jewellery!
We might associate jewellery with metal and glass, but jewellery is just ‘personal adornment’ usually in the shape of a necklace, ring, bracelet, brooch/pin or earrings and they can be made from anything.
This isn’t a competition – there’s no judging and there are no prizes – you just challenge yourself no matter what your skill level and we’d love it if you could post a photo of your jewellery on the forum.
Here are just a few examples of textile jewellery – hopefully they will inspire you to get designing and making!
Pebble necklace, felt, made by Karen (Lincs in Stitches)
Flower pins, organza, silk, etc made by Judith (koffipot)
Butterfly pin, felt and beads, made by Pam (Pamd)
Close up of bubble bracelet, felt, by Ann (Shepherdess)
Flower pin, needle-felt and beads by Annie (rosiepink)
Cuff, felt & stitch by Annie (rosiepink)
Choker, embroidered felt beads by Lyn (rosiepink)
We’re looking forward to seeing lots of pieces of jewellery posted on the forum!
