Sad is the day when all of your meat and potatoes merch disappears from your web site.  Oh, sure.  It's nice to know that someone out there is rocking your flavorful felt rendition of a 1950s-style square meal around her neck or in her side part.  But it's also a bummer to not be able to log on to your humble corner of Etsy and see said supper waiting to serve as some clotheshorse's main course.  So, for all those kooky carnivores out there (but mostly, as I said, for me), I crafted more crazy collars.  As the good people at Hillshire Farms would've said during their last ad campaign, "Go meat!"

Naturally, I made a daintier, bead-bedecked version of my erstwhile Fabulous Felt Steak Dinner Necklace. But I also made the Fabulous Felt Ham it Up Necklace.  I'm not ashamed to admit that this portrait of pork was inspired by none other than my healing hand wound.  Round and pink, it had a reddish, slightly off-center circle that made me think of a cartoon Christmas ham.  If that's not an example of art emerging from adversity, then I don't know what is.
