WireCrochetedCuff-Yoola

The precision work in the netted wire creations of Israeli designer Yael Falk is breathtaking. Equally breathtaking is the thought of how much perseverance and patience was required to establish this technique, which is not quite crochet or knitting. Her pieces are lightweight, distinctive, and easy to wear.  Constructed of gold, silver, or copper wire, they also combine well with one another, as the visual aspect is similar across elements.

Because I was so enamored of her artistry, I ordered one of Yoola’s tutorials and set to work. Creating these wonders is a life’s work! She can afford to generously share her secrets because replicating them is daunting. (I’ll try again some day.)

To learn more about Yoola and her work, visit her website.  If you really want to appreciate her craftsmanship, get a tutorial from her Etsy shop and give it a go. Oh, by the way, good luck with that!
