Wire Knitted Jewelry

What is Knitted Jewelry?

Knitting Crochet stitches part of a needlework technique usually created by using a hook and yarn to create knitted fabrics and decorations. You can also create jewelry using this technique using metal wire instead of yarn or thread.

Wire knitted jewelry has a beautiful delicate look! Its almost incomparable to the traditional kind of jewelry. The stitches create a beautiful texture which gives the piece volume and at the same time is it very delicate. Incorporating stone in Crochet jewelry is giving the piece even more accent and allowing the stone to be accentuated beautifully.

Knitted jewelry can be made in more than one way. After trying several techniques I realized that I am a fan of precise and uniform stitches. Some of the results of using other techniques look messy and sloppy. This is not how I want my jewelry to look like. I prefer to get neater results.

That’s how I came upon Yael Yoola Folk‘s work. She has developed a way of creating neat uniform stitches. I learned it from her and now am using it to create my own jewelry.

In my jewelry I incorporate mostly gemstones and sometimes beautiful crystals such as Swarovski crystals. My wire knitted jewelry is made with high quality materials.
Like every piece of jewelry I create, Wire Knitted jewelry comes in both the Trendy line and in the Exclusive line. ( The Trendy line is made with high quality plated metals that need to be treated with caution to insure long lasting beautiful jewelry while the Exclusive line offers the same  jewelry designs made of durable  precious metals)

Materials

Beautiful top quality designer jewelry does not have to be very expensive, once you make sure that every customer can enjoy beautiful jewelry according to own personal budget.

Exclusive Line

The pieces are mostly made with gemstones and or Swarovski crystals. The Exclusive jewelry lines are made with precious metal wire such as 14K Goldfilled, 925 Sterling silver and/or 935 Argentium Silver. All three materials see that the jewelry stays beautiful for years to come. All three can be shined and cleaned. With these materials you can wash your hands and bathe in the sea. Of course you need to take into account sensitive gemstones such as pearls that cannot be exposed to certain detergents alcohol or other acids.

Trendy Line

Trendy line jewelry is made with high quality silver or gold plated copper wire. There is also a special non tarnish coated plated wire that maintains the shine of the delicate silver or gold plated layer. In this line too as in the exclusive line I incorporate gemstones and crystal beads in my jewelry.

It is however important to know that jewelry made using these materials needs to be protected from exposure to oxidizing elements such as water, alcohol, salt and other acid and alkaline chemicals. Even sweat can change and oxidize these delicate materials. In order to protect them and make sure that they will stay pretty for a long time please pay attention and try not to expose them to those kind of chemicals. See ‘How to protect my Jewelry’ for more information.

BACKGROUND STORY

Nowadays is the market overflown with mass production jewelry made mostly in the far east using industrial machines creating millions of pieces that look exactly like one another. Another way of creating mass production jewelry is by using child of unjust women labor in third world countries.

Handmade jewelry on the other hand is unique. It is made giving each piece of jewelry the time and attention needed to create something special. Each piece of jewelry I make involves hours of planning and hand work.

The techniques I use are various and include weaving, knitting or wrapping used by artisan craftsmen as far in time as 5000 years ago!

The Design process

Customers can choose out of an existing collection. They can choose the same stone or metal or ask to be made a piece of jewelry using their preference in color or material without any additional costs.

I can also create a special piece of jewelry for customers using their own choice of materials and stones. The price range of those designs is in the same range as the rest of the already made pieces. Price depends on material and how much work is invested in a piece. The designing process is free of charge!

Happy Customers

Just as the creative process of making jewelry gives me a lot of satisfaction and happiness, it is very important to me to give my customers the same feeling. This makes the whole difficult process of ‘giving birth’ to a unique piece of jewelry worth it while.

Furthermore, owning and wearing a unique piece of jewelry made with beautiful gemstones attracts attention to my customers. They always receive a lot of compliments.

Thank you very much for a wonderful gift to my friend. She is still really happy with it, it was totally surprise to her when she got it by post. Thank you for the kind help and advice, and for creating that amazing jewelry. I’m sure that i’ll be back again for jewelry shopping.
