Material and manufacture

How can be made so detailed figures, such as frogs, turtles, sunfishes or pumpkins?

These figures are modeled with the felting needle. The felting needle has tiny barbs at its tip, they "cram" the wool fibres into the wool, so that it becomes a solid form.
In this way, individually felted forms will be felted to one another (not embroidered!).
Crowns, pattern etc. are also felted with the needle (not embroidered) - only glass beads or metal parts, such as gears, will be embroidered on the felt.
This technique of modeling with the felting needle is very labour intensiv and time consuming. This explains the relatively high prices of this small jewelry pieces and the long waiting times for orders of this characters.
But you can be sure that your jewelry is unique! ;o)
