Fabric Jewelry

21 Feb

I ran across some fabric jewelry the other day. It's an interesting concept, so I looked for more, and I was amazed at how much I found. The attraction would be the infinite number of patterns and colors that fabric offers.

At Wilde Traditions, I couldn't figure out what they mount the fabric onto to make earrings, but the texture added by the weave of the fabric is quite attractive. They use textile patterns in combination with silver, gemstones, and glass beads to make jewelry.

They also roll the fabric around something – a knitting needle or something similar – to make tubular beads that they use in their necklaces:

Tie-dyed blues and white with blue goldstone and glass beads
Goldstone is a type of glass made with copper or copper salts.

One-of-a-kind fabric jewelry for the wrist, using everything from buttons and pins to felt appliqués and embroidery in a variety of shapes and colors, crafted with handmade simplicity:

bracelets
Fabric Cuff Bracelets

NOTE: It appears that this lady is no longer making these cuff bracelets. I think they're adorable. If you're a bit crafty, give it at try. I think girls would love them.

This bracelet is metallic fabric wrapped around a bangle. It looks like metal at first. but it must be so comfortable to wear:

Once again, very clever use of materials.

    I like fabric jewelry because it is so soft and light to wear. I like jewelry from Kerry K. also and it is the best fabric jewelry I have seen. She is always coming up with new designs I have never seen before. Very bright, feminine, and girly. I have bought several pieces from a boutique in Orange County. It won’t be long till her jewelry catches on as a major trend.

    Those fabric cuffs are wonderful – what a shame the original creator isn’t making them.
