This bangle obviously features handmade felted cabs. It’s focal is a Peruzian cab from Peruzi; made by the deliciously talented Natalie-Fletcher Jones.
The bangle also celebrates the recycling of materials; otherwise destined for the dump despite them being new and unused.
This was made some while ago. The felted cab bangle, an experiment (as most of my endeavours are) turned out joyful and pleasing.
The focal Peruzian cab is surrounded by my beaded & felted cabs – created especially to complement the Peruzian cabochon.
I am including lots of photos. Once in a while, the photos turn out as desired. Then it is hard to cull any!
All the cabs are bead-worked over a rubber-backed curtain material. The curtain material had some relief leaf design which goes with the theme of the piece. After the full cab and other embellishments, the piece is secured to a recycled stubby holder – which naturally forms a perfect cuff or bangle.
