Knitted Jewellery from Elinor Voytal

Amazing knitted jewellery! 

Elinor Voytal has a degree in knitted textiles.  Her graduate collection  was made up of  jewellery pieces made using machine knitting techniques and intricate embellishment.  On her website she says that "Her designs are inspired by the fusion of hard metal and crystal elements into the soft, delicate and luxurious structures of machine knitted silk and viscose. She is interested in the way the embedding of metal findings or embellishment of Swarovski crystals changes the feel and weight of the fabric. The colourway for her graduate collection was taken from pixelised manipulations of her own photographs and she continues to use photography as inspiration."

You can find her website here.
