This surprising wire crochet dreidel is a reminder of how incredibly inspiring I find my workshops.
Once more it proves that by giving and sharing you get back so much, and i will share with you a little story.
Last Friday I opened another beginners workshop , with yet another group with great ladies, one of them called Yoni (that by the way came wearing jewelry to die for , it turned out both she and her son are jewelers.... no wonder :), anyway, she told me that her husband collects dreidels , and that he has quite a few.
When the lesson ended and we were chatting, I suggested without much thought, why don't you make him one when you finish the workshop, you will have by then enough knowledge to develop such an item.
Then, a second later i told her, you know what, i know how to make one, im going home now and if it turns out nice i will send you a photo.
What happend was that even before lunch was ready , I already had my first dreidel done....
I didnt expect it to spin, so when my daughter made it spin i was even more astonished ... lol...
so here it is so you can enjoy it too,

Never too late for unique Holiday gifts :)
You were too busy,
you had too many options and found it hard to choose,
you were on a terrific trip to south America :)
you just couldn't choose...... probably another million reasons can be found, but the bottom line is the holidays are just behind the corner and you are missing some unique and original gifts.
what to do ?
option 1 : if you are crafty : try one or all of my Online video tutorials, you can make special affordable handmade gifts that will draw for sure some WOWs and WAUs
option 2 : if you look for presents for crafty people you can get them one or all of my tutorials, if they don't have them already I'm sure they'll be thrilled about it.
option 3 : buy a nice little box and print my special holiday gift certificate , this certificate will enable the receiver to shop with me with a pre-paid amount.
I offer 3 options : 39$, 89$, 129$ .
option no 4 : yes... there is yet another 4th option, pick the item / items you would like to give as a present, i will send you a nice high rez photo for you to print , you can then get a nice gift box at a local shop and put the print in it.
this will show the person you are buying for that you thought of him/her , bought them something lovely that will only be a little late, or in other words better late then never :)
Happy shopping !

I know how hard it is to find good quality wire in gold color, so now I'm happy to offer you also gold wire on my etsy shop.
you can either take the kit with the draw plate and a crochet hook or just 2 spools of wire.
Each spool has 40yard of 28 gauge quality gold artistic wire, my students LOVE this wire.
It looks and "behaves" almost like gold filled with an affordable price tag.
You can combine the purchase of the wire with any of my wire crochet online video patterns.
This artistic wire is of course also great for other techniques such as viking knitting, spool knitting, classic crochet and classic wire knitting .
