Felted “Amulet” Necklace made of Yak, Camel and Merino; embellished with embroidery and beading (I’m in the process of sewing partial linings — out of cowgirl-themed fabric — in these necklaces to cover the underside of the embroidery (more pics in the future).

Nuno Felted Scarf — This blueberry-and-emerald hued scarf on Suzanne Morgan’s hand-dyed habotai silk measures 9″ x 70″ and weighs one ounce; the colors were inspired by Mount Nittany, a beautiful low mountain that’s visible from my home:
