Art Fair (this Satuarday)

Only a couple of days left for my first art fair (and maybe my last), as expected I haven't finished preparing everything I wanted to, especially since I always want to do more then its reasonable to do.

I have no idea what sort of experience this is going to be, will it put my HIGH or LOW, I try to prepare myself for both, I tell my self its not a "real" design presentation for a real client, only a hobby in a friendly gathering. This is all true but yet I may get disappointed...
if only few people will come....
if they will not appreciate my work and ignore it or just be polite....
if nobody will buy anything (did i just say it out loud ?)....

Then I tell myself I do it for me :) but I dont really believe me...
So - bottom line, if you are local (= in Israel) you are welcome to visit, if you are not but know friends that are, you are welcome to let them know about it, and if you are neither I promise to post here photos of the event, If I'll survive it.

Date :16.5.09
Hours : 10:00-20:00
Place : Shvil ha-no-te-a 9 Even Yehuda
Point No 19 in the event signs

A special design for a special day - happy birthday ISRAEL

Did you ever ask yourself how many "vertexes" does a pomegranate crown have?
Well I have…. and apparently the number varies between 3 to 7.
The interesting thing is that when there are 6 , a star of David appears at the top of the pom .

These finger size star of David poms were created from a coated copper fine wire, using a crochet needle, one is in blue and the second in silver,
Its actual size is : 1.4 X 1.4 X 1" (3.5 X 3.5 X 2.5cm)

keep it simple - Tiny Lace circle Stud earrings - 0.4 inch

A new design I've been working on the last couple of days.

My "Keep it simple" stud earrings are a knitted lace ring made of 14k goldfill to which a stud is attached, each hoop is 0.4" (10mm) , it arrives with silicon closures.

This model can also be ordered in pure silver (999).
The silver for day time and the goldfill for the evening....

I think its time i put my torch back to work, I have so many ideas that would require one.

The Invisible Spool Knitting

Ever since I started publishing my work on the net people kept asking me, but how do you do that? is it crochet? is it knitting? what instrument do you use? how come your loops are so even?

I of course could not explain it with only words, some of my items I called knitted, some crocheted, no matter what title I used I kept getting friendly convos telling me na na na you are obviously using the wrong term.

Some people say that because I use a crochet hook it should be called crocheted, others say that although I use a crochet hook it should be called knitting.
I needles say that some were VERY confident about which term should be used.

I kept apologizing that I wasn't an English speaker, as if it wasn't clear.... and that maybe they were right. To be honest it wouldn't have been anymore easier in Hebrew, my mother tongue, or maybe it would have been because in Hebrew you use the same verb for both techniques =(SRIGA).

But I think that all of this in the past now, yesterday while I was discussing this issue with a very experienced lady both with crochet and with knitting we came to term that actually I was working on an invisible spool....
I immediately fell in love with this term and decided to adopt it, I wonder how it will be accepted. I hope it will be clear that it is NOT real spool knitting (personally I don't really like spools, especially with metal).
I would love to hear what you think.

To add or not to add ? this is the question

For a long time I limited my designs to wires and structures, tried to avoid the beads/pearls/stones road. I’m not sure if it was out of fear (I don’t know nothing about these little creatures), or wanting to stick to my PURE STRUCTURES CONCEPT.
or maybe its because I cant shape them but use them as is, don’t forget I’m a designer and want to actually "mold" my designs into my will.
This week I decided to start exploring this path and see if it works for my eyes, i started by adding pearls to my drop earrings and some more "free" hanging glass beads to my Sunflower designs.

here are the outcomes, love it ? don’t love it? you are welcome to vote :)
the truth is I feel not ad about it, only time will tell.
Now that I read the title I think I see the problem, defining the stones as something you add and not something central in the piece may be wrong.....
