Fiber Arts Friday ~ Jewelry Update

I would like to say "Thank you" to Kathy (Fiberdance) for being generous with sharing photos of her felted/bead shawl pins.  With Melissa (twirlycurlybird) for the day of fun last week and to Wonder Why Gal who helped me figure out how to do the collage pictures. 

Also a big thank you to all who read my original blog about these pins and responded with words of encouragement and suggestions.

Here are pics of what I've done so far........

What a learning experience this has been. 

I spent quite a bit of time looking at videos on youtube about wire wrapping and ran across one on coiled wire beads.  Well, you know I just had to try my hand at that.  This is my first attempt.

Hmmm.... could this be another slippery slope.  Maybe I'll need to try making some shawl pins with coiled wire beads.....only time will tell!

Happy Fiber Arts Friday and don't forget to check out all the other post at Wisdom Begins in Wonder.


  1. They're so pretty, and I absolutely love that last one, it's stunning :)

  2. Absolutely gorgeous, love the coiled bead too! Can't wait to see what you give us next!

  3. Ooo, I love the green one! Your pins are beautiful. Yes, the traffic getting into Bash was horrible. I waited, on the side of the freeway, in line for an hour and 45 minutes. I was doing updates on Facebook about every 20 minutes that seemed to keep my friends entertained. I was glad I had my knitting with me.

  4. The pins are really wonderful. Fantastic!

  5. Some of them look like ribbon candy! Very pretty!

  6. Melissa these are all beautiful and the new coil is awesome. Glad to see that you got the collage to work.

  7. Wow! I'm so glad the pics helped-you did a fantastic job--beeeeutiful!!
