Tefi Find: Ottoman

In order to appreciate the unique stylings of Ottoman's work, you have to understand the tedium behind the art of needlefelting. This craft involves poking a mass of wool roving (or other felt-able fiber) until it naps. The artist can then sculpt and conform the felted mass into a particular shape. In this case, clumps of luscious green moss! Made in three layers, Ottoman's Moss Collection offers up barettes, bobby pins, rings, pin cushions, pendants and brooches. Also in her repertoire: jewelry and accessories made out of cork. Custom orders welcome. Shop: Blog: Location: Oregon, USA
