It's been a while now that I've been fascinated by knots, the simple ones and the more complex,
and i just had to integrate it into my wire crochet creations.
I started reading around (thanking the universe for bringing the internet into our lives....) , I found endless sources about Celtic and Chinese knots , apparently I'm not the only one fascinated about them these days, or maybe not just these days.
Although I'm not Irish (at lest as far as I know) , and although my red hair isn't really mine either, i decided I could "adopt" the knotting into my knitting (nice....)
Im trying to figure out WHY, although its not really that important and I think that maybe the fact that knots have been around for thousands of years if not more, simply adds a flavor that only renewed and recycled objects can bring.
or maybe its the simplicity, its one of these things that anyone can do , a universal knowledge.
In the photo is my celtic heart necklace , made of a handmade crocheted chain, (executed in my invisible spool knitting technique) , it is made of fine fine yellow gold filled wire.
more will come in this direction.... I promise :)

Infinity is a shape that has fascinated me ever since I started designing, and It keep appearing in my designs when I don't expect it :) ages ago when I was still a young design student i created a hanger for a chair in the shape of infinity, this design won me the first place in a compettion held by an Italian company name Progetti. this project made me believe in myself as a designer.
The second time i can mark that this shape came to me when i first discovered the world of jewelry making and stamped infinity spirals on my first handmade silver ring, this was defiantly a life changing experience , since my love affair with jewelry started at that day.
And here it is again, this idea for a necklace has been sitting in my head for quite a while but I never got there to actually making it, until last week :)
I think my special bond with the infinity shape comes from it's reflection in me, I'm also in a constant move.....
The infinity wire crochet necklace is 43 cm (19inch) long and is made of quality gold filled wire, I plan to also make it in rose gold and in white silve
I already have a first order for this necklace ... huuuray !
