Susan Ray, author of Beaded Jewelry: The Complete Guide, Organic Beaded Jewelry, Art and Soul of Glass Beads, Wire Jewelry Workshop and best seller: Easy Beaded Jewelry (with Sue Wilke) offers one of her latest designs:
Lampwork and Druzy handmade felted Spirit Bag OOAK necklace #2018 cascades from genuine leather dark brown 1 mm distressed cording.
Each bag is one of a kind and has a mohair-like feel. I personally hand felted each bag from wool roving from USA and Australian sheep farms. Needle felting takes many hours of love. This Spirit Bag is embellished with a dangling crystal; and glass and pewter ebeads on waxed cording, and a round handmade purple Lampwork disk sewn to the felted bag, with Sari ribbons dangling to one side and another piece of Sari ribbon acts as a closure. You will find a piece of jasper in the bag. (Jasper is known as a protector). Add your own special Talisman.
Overall dimensions: 13”L (1 mm) brown distressed leather cording on each side. The Spirit Bag is 1 3/4 “ W x 3 1/4’ L.
The cording can be cut with scissors to your desired length. Self tie.
Free shipping in the continental United States.
"My love of beads began 17 years ago. I am fascinated by the human story they tell, the nature of the beads, the hands that created and traded them.
This love for beads has led me from my early discovery of the vast bead history available and the opportunity to learn the skills required to create beautiful jewelry myself. I later opened the first bead store in Galena, Illinois and taught more than 20,000 women (and a few men) to bead.
As my knowledge grew I wanted to share it further and wrote five books about beading for the craft industry. Along the way I have made many dear friends and have been fortunate to be inspired by many leading designers. You can visit me here at OneHealingStone on Etsy or on Facebook at my jewelry designers group: Crafting Jewelry Inspiration." - Susan Ray
