Bead Table Wednesday... or meet Eve

Ok This doesn't really fit on  my bead table nor is "Eve" really a bead...

When and if she is ever finished she will be used to display finished necklaces in the gallery.... 

Don't ask how many hours of needle felting have already gone into this!

Ultimately she will be mounted on a turntable (the bottom of a jewellery stand that had the unfortunate habit of flinging earrings all over the gallery when people turned it!)

Yes she was suppose to have a head with 3 faces.... May still happen... but no time soon!

At this point in time I'm thinking a machine (ie washing machine) felted skirt... black  will see if it draps the way I think it should.

This is what I started with... it's actually a float from a cage for a salmon farm... since the top was broken I thought I'd vary the heights on the necklines.... I glued some bits of styrofoam insulation on to build up the rib cage before I started felting... I used weldbond which dries really hard so I actually broke two sets of 5 needles... on the glue before I became more subdued in my felting!

Looks like you felt that up real good.

Sorry, couldn't resist. ;)

Okay, consider me impressed! The largest needle felting project I've ever done fit in the palm of my hand!

What an incredible display! A piece of artwork all of its own.
