Etsy Find of the Day: YooLa Crocheted Metal

Using a tiny crochet needle and coated copper wire, Etsy seller YooLa -- aka Israeli industrial designer Yael Falk -- creates the most intriguing and ethereal objets.

I especially love her abstracted pomegranates, which mimic the form of the fleshy fruit, but do it in an airy, almost ghostly way.

In fact, these remind me a little bit of Ruth Asawa's amazing crocheted metal sculptures.

Prices range from $42 for this vase to $65 to $95 for the pomegranates.

Check out all of YooLa's crocheted metal designs (she has some gorgeous jewelry, too) right here.

ohhh I like. Just when I thought everything in the world has already been done someone pops up on etsy doing something totally original. (if I haven't seen it, it's new to me!) I felt the same way about the chick who crochets over metal hoop earrings.

Very cool indeed.

I love Yoola's work. Have you seen Jriot's? He also crochets wire that sometimes resembles Ruth Asawa's work.
