Gorgeous Felt Jewelry by Applique Originals

By on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 8 Comments

We may not immediately think of felt for jewelry but this material can really become gorgeous adornment in the hands of talented artisans.  The vibrant pieces by Designed by Jane : Applique Originals on Etsy are wonderful examples of how less common materials can be made into striking jewelry.

Jane, who hails from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in northern England, has an uncanny sense of color and design. She builds up her felt shapes just so with the right touches of embroidery and buttons.

She makes brooches, necklaces and even fascinators like this design below :

Flowers are one of her most favorite design elements but she doesn't limit herself there. Being British, this  is her limited edition Jubilee brooch in honor of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration this year.

Brooches are easily her most favorite things to design. She has so many wonderful designs, that it was difficult to choose just a few of my favorites.

It's no wonder she now sells her designs to galleries, boutiques and customers all over the world.
