Studio Goal

While working on the most recent group of “Rhapsody Rose Corsage” pins, I thought of the expression “something lost, something gained” when I examined the results.  I like the whimsical quality of the pins, as well as knowing they will wear well because they’ve been crafted to be durable.  But there’s a softness in the layout before the pins are felted/fulled — a delicate quality — that I am able to preserve in Rhapsody Rose scarves, but that I have not figured out for the pins.  I think this is due to the abundance of silk fibers I use in the layers of the scarves; vs. the merino and Finnwool for the base layers of the pins; and also due to the difference in processing: each little pin is cut out and individually worked to strengthen the felt.   In the coming days I’m hoping to create some “Rose” pins that will retain more of the soft, lustrous quality of the roses in the scarves, but that will still be sturdy and durable pins…
