While getting ready to the coming holidays, I decided its time to say goodbye to some dear tube wire crochet necklaces that i have been making and collecting for a couple of years.
the mentioned tube necklaces are all made of copper artistic wire in various colors, the first one from this special offer is already on its way to Singapore.
The necklaces are offered for a very attractive price, about half to third of the regular collection , part of the reason is that those colors are no longer available and can not be reproduced.
The tube necklaces look great on its own but also in layers, so feel free to pick more then one.
If you want to learn how to make yourself the YoolaTube necklace, you are welcome to check the online video tutorial, or the PDF instructions or the YoolaTube Video kit.

A glimpse to how and where i crochet me jewelry, of course its only the the crocheting itself, the assembling and metalworking is done on a proper table.... no escape...
In the image:
my "portable work corner" : i.e. my plastic milky suitcase
my crochet hooks
my "crocheted handmade" tools - the way to start any of my designs
my beloved gold filled wire spool (the silver sneaked out of the frame)
color wire for experiments
experimental pieces in process
my TO DO notebook
and most important my "recipe crochet notebook" where i write down all the patterns and little tips for myself, what not to do next time i repeat a design, how much wire to leave etc.

My Provencals Pears were created both as a gesture to the fauvism and my yearning for some far away smells.
It was just another rainy homish Saturday (not many of these... where I come from) that I decided to try and form a pear naturally based on my many poms studies.
The first one turned out too fat but showed some potential , with the second I was already very happy, so I couldn't stop and created 2 more with slight modifications. The green was the first the copper second and last bot not least the dark pink one.
The first was sold almost overnight.... couldn't expect a better start.
The pears were knitted using coated copper wire and a crochet needle, its general dimensions are 2"/2"/3.5" (5/5/8cm).
