Sometimes a yarn demands a showcase like this fun and fabulous soft sculpture jewelry. An ingenious pattern combines a smooth, more traditional yarn and one with whimsical felted pieces into a signature piece. Spirals dotted with felted bubbles cascade from a neckband and are held in place with an i-cord loop. Simple increases and an intriguing construction that’s worked flat make it easy to express your effervescent personality as you navigate the social whirl.
