Crocheted and found art jewellery making

Making winter crafts for summer days

These are my latest efforts combining wool and metal. Crocheted amigurumi beads backed onto earrings, rings, and necklace chains makes the sculpture more portable. Combining soft wool sculptures, metal hardware and malleable plastic beading wire is a soothing and meditative practice.

The rings, chains and keychain clasps are all found art, trying to keep it sustainable.

I can’t stress how satisfying it is to make these small projects. The other day I was cleaning up my kitchen and I heard a buzzing sound from near my neck. It was a wasp, in my hair! A very stressful moment. Afterwards, I was feeling dizzy so I say down and crocheted a little jewellery pouch, and it completely calmed everything down. The wasp was gone, I was fine, a bag was made. No need to keep thinking about how that wasp got there in the first place.



I’ve been inspired to make a lot of festival and statement jewellery of late.

It takes a lot of time and not a small amount of wool to imagine, plan out, experiment, fail, adapt, and create. Can you help keep the yarn flowing?
