Raw Bones: Felted necklace




This is the "Raw Bones" felted necklace. When I finished the snake, treated it with the acrylic, and cut it, I thought that it looked like uncooked bones....which is kind of creepy to me, being a vegetarian. However, with the little rose quartz spacers and the touch of red coral, it turned out to be quite the engaging necklace. The upward facing side of the cut beads really does frame the face.


Even if it is a little...morbid?

Wow! That's the kind of necklace I would wear to a party :) The felt is gorgeous, even if it is a little juicy.

What sort of acrylic did you use? Do the beads disintegrate into a pile of fuzz if you don't?

They tend to not hold the hard shape if you don't treat them.
