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 :)

Anna is an Ellipse geomtric crochet ring in rose gold,
I would like to introduce you with a new ring design, high in the front and low in the back. I came up with it thanks to my cleopatra cuff, introduced not long ago.
I plan to one day put all my design in order, to analyze which intrigued which, im sure it will be inetersting
I hope it don't postpone it too much not sure what i still remember.
Every once in a while I wonder which is abetted strategy, to call my items in descriptive names which is a must for the SEO (search engines) to find me , or give them names that I can relate to, it can take it to a certain period or figure like my cleopatra line .
So for this one i comined both, i strted by clling it just an Ellipse Geometric crochet ring in rose gold, but then I felt something is missing, and I got an urge to call it Anna , I can't really explain why, which Anna, from which book i read lately ?
No idea..... But I hope it will give it good carma.

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......

For those of you following my blog for a while and reading about my hesitations weather to work with stones or not, this design will probably come as a surprise, or maybe not?
I actually decide to stop wanting to decide... meaning? I decided to explore it when it crosses my life, which it obviously does... from time to time :)
so here are the very first birds from a larger collection of crocheted potion bags with a stone.
The stones I picked for my very first designs are large pale amethyst, onyx coins in a mat finish and light turquoise coins.
I was looking for a design where the stones wont necessarily win over the knitting....where both get to contribute to the relationship and relate to each other.
The amethyst potion bags have 3 versions, one in silver, one in gold and the third in my favorite oxidized silver (aren't gray and pale purple perfect together ?)
I hope you'll enjoy it :)
