I first noticed Etsy artist Asta because of her the stunningly unique sea glass crochet jewelry she sells in her store called “astash”. I noticed her work again recently when I spotted her crochet acorn party favors in her second store “astashtoys” – favors I included in my recent crochet wedding party favors cargo. I love the originality and bit of whimsy in her work and thought I’d delve deeper into a full profile of that today.
Asta’s Etsy profile explains that she’s raising two children in Portsmouth, UK although she’s originally from Lithuania. She learned to craft from her grandmother when she was a child and particularly remembers that her grandmother was always knitting. Asta knits and also crochets, felts and does photography and flower arranging. Ela adora usar os recursos de cores e composição que ela gosta sobre fotografia ao unir suas jóias crochê e sempre se esforça para obter esse equilíbrio perfeito entre formas e cores em seu trabalho.
Sea Glass Crochet Jóias da Asta
Asta fica vidro mar de Blackpool Beach e crochets em torno dele para criar jóias muito marcante que eu realmente adoro. Estou impressionado com o jeito que ela funciona tão muitas peças de vidro em um pedaço, criação de uma forma que pode ser pesado, e ainda usa as cores eo layout certas para criar uma peça que realmente parece muito leve para os olhos.
Although it’s these big statement necklaces that I really like Asta also makes beautiful simple seaglass crochet necklaces using just one or a few pieces of glass set off perfectly with crochet details:
Other Crochet Jewelry By Asta
Asta also makes and sells a variety of other crochet jewelry in the Astash Etsy Store. I especially love the pieces that combine a natural organic look with elements of geometry. Here are a few of my favorites:
Asta’s Crochet Toys and Decor
Asta also crochets home decor items, brinquedos, ornaments and more, which she mostly sells in her Astashtoys Etsy Store. She also sells some of her photography and other artwork here.
How could you incorporate local materials, such as sea glass, into your own crochet work?
