Needle-felted necklace – "Gaea Emerging"

In making Gaea Emerging, I came up with a two-layered solution to the problem of stitched-on embellishments getting lost in the texture of wool roving when needle-felting is used as a background.  In detail shot #2, you can see a small area of netting that I used to smooth down the first layer of roving.  A thinner second layer of roving is hand needle-felted in selected areas so that beads nestle into it, but are not swallowed up by it.  The centerpiece of Gaea Emerging is a CopprClay pendant that I made, fired, and patinated.
