With these felted treasures, Sharon shows you how to combine them to make necklaces and bracelets. This is a fun, easy and inexpensive project to try.


"I love working with felt and beads or stones because I love to see the juxtoposition of wool which is soft and fairly matte, and the shine and hardness of the stone." -Sharon

Very good Review by Robin

Sharon explains things clearly, which is great. I learned a lot about making cords, beads and putting stones or other objects into felt. But I really would have liked more info and details about finishing the necklaces, attaching pendants to cords etc.

Great ideas Review by Gayle

This short video shows you how to felt cords, beads and how to encase objects in felt. She does a great job of showing and explaining the techniques and her examples of finished jewelry show the various ways the techniques can be used. The reason I did not give 5 stars was the lack of explanation of how she attached the pendents to the cords. I could see the one cord was attached to the pendent through a hole made in the felt, but would have liked to see the back of other pendents to see the attachment process. One of the reasons I like books/videos for "how-to" is so I learn the tips the teacher had to figure out the hard way, rather than make all the mistakes myself, and I am sure, given the weight of the stones, that there are plenty of wrong ways to attach the pendants. Would have been helpful to have some tips on this process.
