Story about wire

I seem to have knit all my life. Tried all the techniques and ways of knitting. But always the basic material was yarn.
But a few years ago, while in Venice in one of the amazing workshops of Venetian masters, I saw an elderly lady was knitting from a brilliant yarn. I the corner of my eye watched her, but then broke down and asked what she is knitting.
And then I just froze. She used to knit wire!      My surprise was not the limit.
And so when I returned home I, of course, tried to knit with wire.
There are so funny to look at my first, clumsy and awkward. Has been studied a huge amount of learning material and just tons transferred to the sample wire. It was an ordinary one from an old motor)))
At that time it was difficult to find the good stuff. And I postponed for a while this way and returned to normal yarn. A couple of years I still found the good colored wire and has resumed his efforts to create something similar for decoration.
Now you can see the latest work. The study used German and English wire combined with Japanese beads.

Then I’m preparing for a contest long thought what to communicate so as to convey the color and texture of the fabric… and was born a series of Palette…

“Apotheosis” of my work was a small book devoted to tutorials on creating jewelry related from a wire. In it I showed in detail of master-classes is not complicated, according to him, anyone who owns the hook will be able to please yourself or friends with an unusual decoration.

Story about the kindness and Kelly.

Remember in the first post, I told you the story of the emergence of my very first doll? I called her Nina. This doll Simba Evi.

My first doll

Nina has become my favorite model. Just for her, I did the first collection of dresses and suits. I, naive, thought that this is Kelly))) And therefore on different resources, exposing my works, wrote that this outfit dress for Kelly))
Now, of course, I know the real Kelly.) So… On one of these sites I wrote one good lady:” Your dress is very cute, but why do you show them on the wrong doll?”
At first, I was taken aback, but our dialogue continued and the lady gave me a gift with a note – “I want you to show your wonderful outfits on this Kelly, so I’ll send you the doll as a gift.”
I was touched to the depths of such a proposal and waited for the overseas guest.
After a month I finally received a package from the US, and what was my surprise in the bag lay as many as two dolls!!! So cute and nice. Blondie and brunette with a short bob. They were naked and completely ready to dress in beautiful outfits.
I’m certainly in response made a dress for my kind companion. So all the attention is on the screen. Yes,

I forgot to say that the first time I wanted to move away from the bright colors and tie something in subtle shades.il_570xn-1172530479_gy3iimage1

 

 

About me

Hello, I am Olga. I am from Russia.

I was born in Severomorsk, where he served in the Navy, my father. Later he moved to Saint Petersburg, where I live now. Petersburg for me, the most favorite city, the eternal source of inspiration and admiration of cultural heritage.

“I from early childhood, as far as I can remember, and the stories of my mother, engaged in various kinds of needlework. Basically, it is, of course, was knitting. Thanks to my grandmother who showed me the basics and taught to hold knitting needles and a crochet hook. So it seems to me now that I knit all my life.”

How it all began
Starting in 2014, knitting from a hobby to a job and acquired the name of “Creativhook”.
I well remember that important day when I realized that the doll wardrobe is what I would like to do is always: “Returning from work, I saw an elderly woman, who sold on a small tray, like a doll. Maybe I was a bit sorry for the woman, but maybe my opinion was interested in the babydoll face. It was so nice that I just unbearably wanted to take her home! She stood on the tray and patiently waited when I will pay attention  frankly, for many of my friends such a sharp reversal in this topic came as a surprise. Because I used to make jewelry, but interest in it is beginning to fade. And here, as inspiration! – I finally realized that the little outfits for the dolls – that’s exactly what I wanted to do!”

Now, when my hobby for almost 2 years, my work is all the more interesting to fans and collectors of dolls. Who wouldn’t want to dress your baby in clothes? By the way, to some extent, and I became a collector, that doll’s wardrobes were not bound “by eye”, and had pinpoint accuracy. Of course, to buy all the dolls impossible, but the most interesting is already settled in my collection. They are my treasure and source of inspiration. And with them, I will introduce you to my blog.
