Skills and Techniques

So far it's crochet, spool knitting and knitting with wire, but who knows what I might stumble upon yet. This technique is harder on the hands and more time-consuming than with yarn. Usually the wire shows the way and I just follow where it takes me to ... A while ago I entered the fascinating world of polymer clay. Even if I'm still at the beginning, I am having big fun already, especially with combining it with my wire crochet!
Uh-oh, I just started bead looming!

Get to Know

All my life I was fascinated by jewelry. Almost by accident I discovered wire crocheting and got addicted to it, then I added wire knitting with a spool or needles. Sometimes I even combine the techniques. I doubt that will have been the end of it yet. I work in sterling or fine silver and copper wire in different colors, my pieces mostly are one of a kind because I like to experiment and try new things all the time. Often I just let the hook/spool/needles and the wire take over to lead my fingers and ideas. I just started to discover the world of polymer clay. I like to make miniatures or sculptures, but also to incorporate polymer clay in my wire crochet jewelry designs. I live in a town in Southern Germany with my husband and four crazy cats. You have questions about my items or just want to drop me a line for fun? Go ahead, this is a message friendly shop! :-) As you can see, item and shipping costs are separated in my shop. What you see is what you get, I want you to know where your money is going to and what for. The shipping costs are still under the actual cost for myself.
