Wire Knit Jewelry by Yoola

By on Tuesday, March 06, 2012 10 Comments

I am constantly in awe of other wire knit or crochet artisans who take wire work to new dimensions.  Israeli artisan, Yael Falk of Yoola on Etsy is the latest find.

She exploits her skill at making even crochet stitches to great effect as seen by her contemporary style collection. Simple motifs like flowers, pods twists and geometric shapes are evident in her designs.

Yael is an industrial engineer by profession. Although she uses tons of creativity in her day job, she longs to use her hands to make things.

It took her a long time to find the avenue in which she could expressive her creativity in a more tangible fashion.  She finally found it when she took a jewelry course and everything fell into place for her. She has been doing well ever since!



She also does wonderful wire work decor items like these 3-D pears!


Update :  I have amended the post as Yael says she actually uses a special knitting technique which is even more remarkable - if you've tried knitting with wire, you'll know

  7. Thanks Yael for the correction - I have amended the post. I think your work is even more remarkable as knitting with wire is not an easy task having tried it myself! It is possible to do even crochet stitches though!
