My jewelry is the result of my desire to incorporate color into my work without using stones. The color was to be from an alternative source. Through trial & error & consideration of many materials I concluded that WOOL FELT was perfect. The material is durable, pliable, possesses a rich, saturated color and a hint of texture. I manipulate felt into shapes and set them like stones into my oxidized sterling and 18k Bi-metal jewelry. This is a technique that I developed on my own to suit my needs.
