This has to be my favourite commission yet! I’ve been asked to make a silver version of a knitters’ stitch holder. My client uses them to hold shawls and cardigans closed and thought it would be a lovely idea to have one made in silver… Me too!!
This is the everyday (common or garden!) aluminium version. I love the simplicity of the design and the clean lines and can’t wait to make a lovely silver version…
First things first, the ecosilver order arrives..
Shaping the wire, filing and sanding away any rough edges, so that it can glide through wool without snagging.
It’s an open and shut case, I’d say ;)) Well, almost, I still have to work-harden the wire to make it more durable for everyday use but, other than that, it’s almost there (shape-wise, at least – my client may choose a slightly more worn or hammered finish in the end – but it’s getting there!) Personally, I love it and think she’s onto a winner. A brilliantly simple, yet sophisticated, design solution. And just so charming (and elegant) in silver.
I want one too!! :))
