pond scum bracelet

Trying my hand at a new surface for my stitching.  I've wanted to make bracelets for a while now so I finally set the stones aside and started one.  I showed it to my husband and he said "Oh, you're putting your pond scum on a bracelet?  Cool.

I laughed.  He didn't intend it to be derogatory, (though in the future, darling, try to avoid the word 'scum', just to be safe) my work is reflective of all of those odd little bits in nature.  Pond scum included.  It is, after all, my very favorite color in the world.

With luck, I'll have some pictures of a completed pond scum bracelet to share soon.

Have a great weekend, all.

What's the felt formed around here Lisa? Somehow it looks quite weighty, unlike its namesake!

Thanks so much, everyone!

Annie - it's solid felt. I needle-felted a bracelet shape and then wet-felted it a little to smooth it out. It was fairly firm to begin with but once the stitching was done, it became even more so. Nice and sturdy, for felt.
