Cozy jewelry? If you know Yanka, you surely know that she's famous for her elegant handmade jewelry. Even her statement bead embroidered necklaces are exquisitely beautiful and refined. But cozy? Isn't it a little off beat? Well, if you think so, you don't really know Yanka and you must (I ain't kidding) visit her CROCHET and KNIT accessories shop section where coziness rules!
Soft, fluffy and beautiful mohair hats with jacquard patterns, cozy, warm shawls and stoles, hats knit from natural yak wool, cardigans and more, everything made by Yanka and one of a kind!
Stop, and what about AMIGURUMI dolls? I really can't tell are they more cute or cozy, or both, but I'm totally sure that everyone, including most masculine men, would love to have one of this dolls/animals for sure!
Oh, they have character! Some of them even have to be tamed, like Peter Rooster, while some are willing to give you their heart. Special, one of a kind, they will make unforgettable gifts!
But we were talking about jewelry, weren't we? Cozy jewelry, and how could jewelry be cozy? Well, just look at these brooches - soft, pleasant to touch and so nice, made from natural materials, meant to hold your shawl sides together and keep you warm. Do you feel it? Would you love to get one of these? There's only one of each ready to ship, so I hope you won't be late to click the SHOP button!
It isn't surprising that Yanka had created quite a number of products featuring Koi Carp. Many of them are sold, but few are available, so check them out!
Yanka never repeats herself, she finds it boring, so there's only one such pendant available in our store. The shipping is free (see F.A.Q. for the list of eligible countries) and so far all our packages had arrived to our customers safely and, maybe, with just a slightest delay due to coronavirus situation.
It all started almost occasionally, my friend bought a beaded fox brooch from me and asked, casually, if I could make a brooch of her dog. I said that I'd like to try, you see, I had never created a pattern from scratch before, but it also was cool and I loved the challenge!
This brooch turned out quite large, but it was exactly what my friend wanted and she loved it!
But then the challenge got harder. It was Russel, a black Cane Corso, who almost made me to step back and lose confidence. Whenever I tried to create pattern following the lines of his picture, I was left with a fat blot of black ink. But it didn't stop me! I had many pictures of Russel, so I decided to take out his main features and draw a pattern as I see it.
I put the most close picture here, so you could see how it went. Personally, I loved the result, but the most important for me was that Russel's mom also LOVED IT!
I don't feel good posting people's pictures online, so you can't see her smile, but believe me she's literally beaming.
It was her Birthday present, and now tell me, what doggie's (or kittie's) mom wouldn't love to get such brooch for her Birthday?
Please, don't be mistaken, it takes time and effort to create pattern, to choose the right colors and get the right beads, to create brooch. These beaded pet portraits are truly unique, but everything comes for a price. Speaking of which, I can't give you the precise number. Prices greatly depend on many factors, so each case better to discuss individually, but I can give you the range:
Custom pet portrait beaded brooches price varies from $50 to $120.
All prices include shipping by Eco Post Express International mail. Valid tracking number provided.
So you'd like to know more about the $50 brooch, right? When these pet portrait brooches had become popular (and people really LOVED them) a new customer had asked me if I could make it small. She didn't like large, statement jewelry, and I tried my best to make something cute and special just for her.
Cute as a pie, isn't it. I don't want to brag too much, but little Teddy's beaded portrait was an instant success, and I heard from our common friends that she wears this brooch everyday!
So? What do you think? Would you like to order your custom pet portrait beaded brooch for yourself? By the way, it doesn't have to be a brooch, I can also make you a beaded custom pet portrait set into a nice frame as a picture. Would you like it? CONTACT ME to discuss the order details!
P.S. Beanie hats are on sale, don't miss them!
This is our first blog post - and surely we wanted it to be special, so it took us some time to decide what to write. Seriously, it could take us even more time, but something wonderful happened and we had to share it with the world!
We had a sale! No, we had 2 sales, one after another after an unbelievable long period of no sales at all. And when I say 'long' I mean years, not weeks. It felt like a curse, really, no matter what we did or tried to do, no matter how much we invested into advertising, we had no sales. NULL. NADA. ZULU.
Then just few days ago - BOOM! - we've sold two wood burned kokeshi dolls to United States!
We were like 'Wow, awesome, a sale!', but then the next day we've got another mail. This time it was hand knit hooded scarf that went to Germany, and we knew that something had finally changed for us.
So Yanka decided that now it's her turn to give something for our next buyer. Something cute, fitting the occasion (it's Halloween soon, guys!) and useful too.
She made this little witch pendant and will send it together with our next order as a surprise gift (well, not so surprise since I'm telling you about it, but nonetheless), and if the sale happens really soon, the package will arrive before Halloween! C'mon, you don't wanna miss it!
Visit any of our Etsy shops (see links on a home page) and buy something in one of them!
So easy? Yes! By the way, there is a 30% off sale on beanie hats in YANKAcrochet shop, so what are you waiting for? Click the picture below to check it out, and who knows, probably, you'll get yourself a new hat and a cute witch charm!
