A couple of months ago I received a surprising request,
"can you knit me a set of a bracelet and a matching belt for my wedding dress ? "
surprising , isn't it ?
I must admit , I thought to myself, is she serious ? this is going to cost her a fortune for me to knit her a belt...and for me to take days, I was obviously thinking on my own measures.... :)
When I had a second look at her request and noticed her size, I realized this may actually be feasible.
Did I mention I love custom orders ? they sometimes take me to places I would have never gone on my own, its like an adventure, its not that i take everyone crossing my path, but this one i did take and I'm happy i did.
One thing led to another and both the belt and the bracelet found their way to far away Australia (which apparently has superb post services, deliveries make it there with no time).
As the wedding plans went forward I was also happy to prepare gold bangle bracelets for the bridesmaids, and a set of a faux pendant necklace and matching faux pearl earrings for the bride.
What a fingerprint on a wedding of people I never met, and probably never will.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was to see the artistic wedding photos , i selected just a few so you can enjoy them too.

For some time now I've been on a hunt after rose gold tube clasps for my YoolaCuff , a wire crocheted bracelet cuff.
I dont think there is one etsy seller I didnt nag about this, plus all loacl supply shops I know.
and finally yesterday just before I was about to give up and send for plating in rose gold my usual yellow gold filled clasp, i found them !!!!! they are just slightly shorter but they are perfect.
I started the hunt for one very dear client that eventually settled for orange wire cuff with yellow gold filled clasps, which turned out stunning ! and continued for another dear client that will I'm sure appreciate the results of my hunt, both already have YoolaCuff in other colors :) one in silver and one in yellow gold.
But to be honest the one that would be the most happy would be me..... because along the search I developed a strong MUST HAVE for a rose gold cuff of my own......

I was hoping to issue another video of my wire crocheting much earlier, but time fly by and so many other projects got in the way, but this is it, its here, my YoolaCuff video tutorial for making a crocheted cuff bracelet.
You need so much patient for video editing, i wouldn't have guessed, the funny thing is i thought it would be easier then writing more tutorials, and will enable me to issue new wire crocheting tutorials faster Haaaa :)
So its for sure not easier and it will take some time to publish more, but i think its very much worth it, it may even build up to an online workshop, ambitious for someone that only has 2 video tutorials, i know.
How it works - the buyer receives a link and a code that enable him or her to view the tutorial online. in addition i send the PDF tutorial for some more reading .
I also offer people that bought from me in the past the YoolaCuff tutorial to upgrade for a special reduced rate so they don feel left out .

As you can see i was busy last weekend making this WIDE bracelet,
Its been sitting in my head for a while now to try and make a wider version of my glam flat bracelet. I wasn't sure if i will be able to maintain the consistency in such a large and straight piece. but i thing it turned out not bad at all, I LOVE it but still waiting for the right occasion to put it on. Its not an everyday item, unless you are a princess or a movie star......
