Yoola Design's $59 Unique Wire Crochet Knit Kit and Tutorial Giveaway

By on Monday, July 14, 2014 97 Comments

I featured Yael Falk's wonderful and unique wire work jewelry designs some 3 years ago.  This Israeli designer (Yoola Design) is so innovative that I had a hard time back then describing her fantastic technique. Is it wire crochet or knitting?  Yael calls it the ISK (invisible spool knitting) wire crochet technique. She uses special small looms and tiny hooks to create flat as well as 3D designs all of which are finely executed.



Some of my favorite designs from her collection are her earrings.


If you've tried wire crochet before, you'll know it is hard to get even stitches. Yoola's looms makes this possible. The hoop earrings below resemble Viking knit but was created differently and I suspect faster too.


Isn't the Cleopatra collar necklace spectacular?  The jewelry set is just as stunning plain or embellished further with focal beads etc.


Her hybrid technique can also be used for bezels.


Or even as home decor items like these pears!  Check out her lampshades too!


Yoola has worked hard and grown her brand so much so she now offers not just her jewelry designs but also the tools, tutorials and patterns (both pdfs and videos) for those interested in learning her technique.  She has a wide variation of kits and supplies.  I recently bought the fine crochet hooks and this starter kit myself!  Note she is also on Etsy.


Yael also gives workshops in Europe.  Check out her workshop schedule on her website.  Also watch this great interview. Non-Israelis may not understand the language but the 2-minute video shows one of her workshop classes in session.




Giveaway

One lucky winner of this giveaway will win Yael's wonderful sunflower tutorial kit!  This is worth $59.



If you'd like to be that winner, then  have a go at winning the above Yoola Design kit,  please make a comment below. Make sure you leave contact info if you do not have an online shop or blog. Please also share which other kits or patterns might be your favorite in the comments.

Subscribers need to click on the post title to come to my actual blog. Scroll down and enter your comment. Pick Name/URL. If you don't have a store or blog, leave the URL blank. 

This giveaway is international.

Extra entries if you become or are a blog subscriber or follower etc. If you also do shout outs about this giveaway, those will count as additional entries too! Please say so in the comments.


It ends in a week's time at 6 pm EST Monday,  July 21, 2014 . I will pick the winner randomly and announce the results as soon as possible after. So be sure to leave a contact email if you don't have an online link or make sure you come back and check! Otherwise I will redraw in a week. Good luck!

  34. I just read Michelle's comment and had to laugh - I've had trouble with my own spool wire knitting - the wire breaking deep inside the spool - words being spoken that shouldn't have been spoken - ahem -

    Go ahead and put my name in again Pearl - I'll give it a try!
