Inspired Transformation

Knit Silver Wire, originally uploaded by fmirela.

The materials I work with are just as important as the design.
For me, as a hobby seamstress with love for fabrics, it is all about creating.
Starting from scratch to create materials requires more work but the final results are always worth it.
There are various techniques to creating unique handmade items. Use the traditional knit and crochet techniques to transform a simple line of yarn into your own fabric.
Then take this to the next level and knit with silver wire instead of yarn. You will need more patience and practice makes it perfect. Make time pass slowly from old to new and create your own timeless jewelry.
I knitted this bracelet and pendant by randomly stringing freshwater pearls on silver wire. I try to look outside the box for inspiration. I referred to the sewing world and found this organza ribbon as closure for the bracelet.

Small crochet motifs like the circles and flowers or granny squares make pretty patterns for silver wire earrings and pendants. Snake like wire weaves are a good base for bracelets and collars.

It is all about transforming your prime material into whatever you envision. I love to transform fabric into clothes, silver into jewelry.
