* felt bead necklace and ring

Posted on January 15th, 2009 by maitreya. Filed under Jewelry.

Since stringing my sister’s resin necklace on weedwhacker cord worked so well, I’ve been itching to make myself a necklace with it.  Poking around in the toolbox that I keep all my jewelry stuff in, I found these Japanese felt beads I got from Reprodepot a while back (they’ve got them in a ton of colors in the notions section) and wondered if I could force them onto the cord.  I had to made a hole first with progressively bigger needles, and cut the cord at an angle to make a point, but it actually worked pretty well.  It’s got the same adjusting mechanism as the resin one, and I think it’ll look good at a choker length.

Mixed in with the beads, I had even already glued a darker pink one into a bezel cup to make a ring and then never finished it.  Now I have a set.

p.s. Looks like a couple of Etsy sellers have some great variations on this idea!
