Wool Geode Zipper Necklace class

We had such a fun time making these Wool Geode Zipper Necklaces at Maleku Jewelry a couple of weeks ago! The students learned how to make a wooly geode, how to wet-felt the wool beads, and how to assemble this artsy necklace. They got to choose from some pre-felted items too, coordinating colors with their own felted wool beads, so that we didn't spend all day felting but much of the time creating. I love how they all turned out, and I think everyone was happy with their work too! Here are a few pictures of their gorgeous necklaces.
 Diane ready to assemble her beautiful necklace, above. Love these earthy hues she chose!
This piece will look great with black, white, or even denim!
 Ileana added a bit of bling to her hand-felted purple beads!
 Some of my favorite colors, love those teals and greens!
This artsy student added lots of bead embellishments to her gorgeous piece as well as an asymmetric look, so unique!
Beautiful shades of amethyst and plum harmonize perfectly with the wool geode here!
 In the afternoon these hard-working gals felted wallets! They did an amazing job, the pictures don't do justice to these beautiful pieces.
I really enjoyed teaching this fun group of gals! Looking forward to going back to Greenville and teaching at the shop again sometime. And a special bonus - I get to visit my son and dil while I'm there too! It's a win-win for everyone.
