When Etsy was born, it finally gave artisan jewelers a place to share their personalized craft with the world, and we’re absolutely loving it.
It wasn’t too long ago when millennials decided that it wasn’t just a hobby for grannies and dubbed the art of crochet as trendy, and as Herald Net describes, “Crochet’s enduring popularity is due partly to today’s high quality, luxurious yarns, many at affordable prices."
This has allowed the creative minds to branch out from traditional crochet apparel and into unconventional accessories, such as jewelry.
From the multitude of Etsy shop owners to high fashion designers like Jean Paul Gaultier, who has produced a white crochet necklace that’s sold through the international retailer Lyst, everyone seems to be going gaga for crochet accessories.
In honor of this craft, we’ll take a look at this era’s up and coming crochet jewelers. Maria Piedrahita Crochet has this breezy element to it, so it’s not much of a surprise that this particular artist decided to go down the tropical route when designing her pieces. Although yarn isn’t the only medium that this artist works with, Maria Piedrahita has quite a collection of crochet jewelry through her Agua de Coco brand with detailing that would the island lifestyle.
