There is a new surge in knitted fiber jewlery and you can see some wonderful stuff at etsy"Whether it's crochet, woven, embroidered or felted, jewelry made from alternative materials is on the rise, and it's quite avant garde. (And beautiful!)"
I was drawn to one artist in particular, Madam Uloni, a knitter and graphic designer from Germany. I love her free form style and intricate designs. Her work is defiantly not from your grandma's era. It's fresh, graphic, and artistic.
