Happy Horny Fungi Ring




I am really happy about how the colours came out in this one. Constructed from merino wool which I first wet felted and then needle felted. I also used UV resin at the base of the felted structure with natural rough diamonds.

The ring base is Faux Bone with sterling silver tube rivets.

The ring size is a US 7.5 and stands about 12cm above the wearer's finger.

I wanna know how it stays upright.

Oh you absolutely should be happy about how the colors turned out. Each piece you do works magic with colors. I know I am beginning to sound like a stuck record about the colors! LOL!! But it just stands out so much, so beautifully. Maybe one day I'll get used to them and the record will move ahead a bit :-P.

Thanks Susan, Loani & Swati!

Loani - the felt is very rigid as I needle felted it to death. The two horns are only wet felted though so they are bendy. There is a column of Faux bone protruding up from the ring base, underneath the body of felt. I made the surface of the FB under the felt all uneven so the felt would want to stick to it.

Maybe don't take it out in a strong wind though just in case......!

See! See! That engineer life is affecting everything you do. I think I want an engineering life too.
