Mixing It Up

I thought I'd try mixing all the different techniques I've been playing around with into one piece. I started with a felted rope that I made from a recycled wool sweater. I crocheted around the rope in freeform style then combined it with some of the metal findings and glass beads that I purchased from a couple of Etsy shops recently.

I was pretty pleased with the end result, so I made a pair of earrings to go with the necklace. This was a fun project and I'm planning to make some similar pieces for my Etsy shop. I think it will be a nice change for the new year.
