Have you ever wondered how your favorite modern lace jewelry is made?
Step into my studio and I'll show you the process!
It all starts with an idea. Sketching out my design helps me to make sure the dimensions are not only beautiful and elegant, but wearable.
All Twyla Dill contemporary lace jewelry is made in my Seattle studio with the help of my assistant Rachel; by our hands, for you!
Using a very tiny crochet hook (about 0.55mm to be exact) she showed me the stitches to make little flowers, scallops and designs on the edge of an old t-shirt. I still have the shirt to this day, although my lace making has improved greatly since then.
My first pieces of jewelry were made with what I had on hand; leather, a small crochet hook, thread and a lot of patience.
