Felt Jewelry by Danielle Gori-Montanelli

Let's consider three definitions of
the word felt:
as a type of cloth formed when wool
fibers are mixed with moisture,
heat and pressure;
as the past tense of the verb 'to feel'
 describing one's emotional reactions;
and as a term to
explain the tactile, physical
sensations of an object.
Few people would
attribute this trio of terminology
to one artist's work, but
 all three can be appropriately used
when discovering the jewelry and
accessories created by

She designs with felt cloth making
wonderful pieces of wearable art.
While she doesn't actually make her
 own felt cloth, she does sew every
piece of her creations by hand with
 needle and thread.

  Her creative process is improvisational.
Her creations are multi-dimensional.
Vibrant colors and thick structural
elements combine in myriad ways
emerging as lush, dense sculptures.









Colorful is just the beginning.








Highly textured is an understatement.






Whether she uses spectral colors or
monochromatic themes each
piece is a work of art.







This composition is breathtaking.




This artist transforms simple felt cloth
into multi-dimensional, vibrantly-colored
colossal works that inspire and delight.

This large-scale work provides
 large-scale inspiration.

Enjoy!
