What's new?

Hey there! What's new with you? I have been up to something new, and wanted to share it with you :o)

My creative brain is always up to something when I least expect it. Lately, these cameo pendants have been showing up on my work table. They are pretty amazing, even if I do say so myself! They have incredible detail for being so small. 

Of course, it make sense that I would begin with bird faces. Even so, I soon moved on to women faces. I had been searching for Picasso art influences on Pinterest, and well, here we are. This is how things go over here.

In one of my MATS classes, I created an illustration of a big lipped woman with a fabulous shade of coral lipstick, and she has stayed with me. 

Starting to create the pendants is an exercise of will over the wool, which resists being tamed by the needle felting needle. And these are so small that I can only use a single needle. My next purchase will involve some extra strength magnifying glasses, that is for sure!

Once finished, I set them into the pendant blanks, and have fun pairing them with some geometric beads I found. I paint the beads to bring out colors in the pendant. I also use some of my crystal beads and lampwork beads I collected during my stint at beading. It's all too fun!

I will be at Glitterfest this coming Saturday. Hope to see some of you there!

Hi Norma,
Thank you for your nice comment. I was at Glitterfest last Feb, but I have a conflict with the Oct 2016 Glitterfest date. Sadly I will not be there, but I plan to be at the Feb 2017 show. Hope to see you then!
