Designed and felted by Gun-Marie Nalsen 2019

Needle felting

Hand dyed wool roving on wool fabric

Framed

4″ x 6″

On July 18, 2019 I became an American Citizen, yeah! This piece reflects my life through the countries I have been longer. I was born in Stockholm, Sweden, you can see the flag and the red houses. We emigrated when I was a little over a year, to Venezuela, beautiful tropical country, where I grew up , got married and had my kids, here you see the flag and the beach. Life changed and I had to come to the USA, I have lived here over 11 years, the flag and the Statute of Liberty with the city silouette ,and finally I got my Citizenship, very happy for that! Thank you America!

small jewelry

Designed and felted by Gun-Marie Nalsen 2019

Needle felting

Hand dyed wool roving on wool fabric

Framed in wood and mounted on metal medalions

This work has been fun to make. Working in very small format is a meticulous work, chosing the right colors and place where to felt. I enjoyed it a lot! Some of them are pendants, others pins, magnets and even a chain cat! Note than a put a clip as reference of the size.
