Blue felt necklace




I just completed this blue felt necklace...somewhere between making the mushroom galette and the vegetable broth. I had to to take a break from the cooking and so THIS was my thanksgiving. It is made from a rope of wool felt which was layered in different colors before felting. After I wet felted it and it was dry, I soaked it in a liquid acrylic polymer so that it could be cut and it would keep it's sharp edges. I cut it and strung it today. The necklace is just shy of 15 inches long, so it lays ever so elegantly against the collar bone. The beads are glass and the clasp is silverplated and magnetic (so it goes on SOOOOOO easily). I love it, because it gives a great pop of color around the face and is a real statement peice. It is for sale on Etsy as we speak.

Just lovely.
I like that you rolled the pieces before cutting for contrasting angles.

What liquid acrylic polymer did you use please? I make felt necklaces at home in Scotland for friends and it might help stop them going a bit fluffy after a while.

I was just wondering where do you get that liquid acrylic polymer for hardening the wool and does it have a name with witch I could try to find some for myself?
