Lately I have been noticing fiber wrapping on jewelry components. Embroidery thread is the ideal wrapping material because it is quite thick if you do not separate the individual threads it is made from.
We sell embroidery thread in multi packs in the Outlet so I was looking for a unique way to use it. I decided to upcycle this 70’s style earring component.
I simply wrapped my threads in interesting color blocks. I was careful to make sure that my knots were all at the back. An embroidery needle made passing the thread through the opening go even quicker.
I took a photocopy of my finished peices so I would have a paper template. I then used the template to cut some felt to use as a lining.
I glued the felt to the back and now it looks nicely finished!
