Brooklyn-based artist, Ashley Stevens, creates stunning pieces of jewelry by casting knit and crochet stitches in silver.
These are solid sterling silver castings of handmade knitting. I knit each model piece to attain my desired shape before it is cast in silver. These are not cut from found fabrics. Many have hand-fabricated elements after they are cast in metal, such as forged ear wires with hinges and clasps and further shaping of the metal. Most are blackened and brushed or polished to accentuate the texture of the knit stitches.
I can imagine these earrings and bracelets would be at the top of any knitter or crochet enthusiast’s gift wish list! [via Shannon Henry on Pinterest]
