When every single piece of jewelry takes hours if not days to complete, you know it's something truly special.
California-based designer Susan Drews Watkins specializes in one-of-kind hand-felted jewelry. The first step is to create the metal form which is then connected to organic materials, like wool felt. The felt wool fibers are hand-needled directly onto the metal form as its centerpiece. Susan enjoys working with contrasting materials - soft and hard, organic and metallic, dark and light. The resulting jewelry is simple, yet intriguing, inspiring close examination as curious art objects.
