Inspiration and felt

Things I gathered to go on my design board for this project:
  • Picture of a piece of jewellery with stones and settings that reminded me of the shapes in my original starting out picture
  • Piece of sari fabric with similar shapes and colours
  • Postcard - "Africa" by Sally Hopper Stainsby - the colours, patterns and textures complement my designs and inspired the piece of felt at the bottom
  • Felt - Hand made felt incorporating metallic threads. I plaited some of the felt tops and threads together to make "dreadlocks" which I felted into the piece
