Felting is a huge movement in the home crafts industry in Germany. The country has a growing group of people, mostly women, enamored by DIY culture, and felting is one of the most popular, alongside beading.
While jewelry making occupies hobbyists from around the world, felting has not really had a significant presence in North America. But all that could change.
Tally Locke (littlepurls on Etsy) is a Sacramento, California based artist who hand knits and hand felts her creations.
This gallery features some of her vibrantly coloured works. She crafts everything from bracelets to unisex neckties.
The gallery also shows work by 3FUN , starting with the brown and blue felted bangles, an artist who is based in Charlotte, NC.
