YooLa


Red-headed vixen Yael Falk of YooLa knits intricate and original jewelry and home decor items with a crochet needle using a secret method. Well, maybe not so secret since you can buy instructions for how to follow her methods directly from her shop on Etsy.

Tell me about how you originally got into your craft.
I think i was born with passion in my fingers, i'm never satisfied and always curious to learn a new craft.

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
That's an impossible question for me to answer, i love so many things. But maybe if i think about it a bit more - i n v e n t , find an original way of looking at things, solving a new design, that sort of thing.
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your shop?
Managing to make two items the same and not be too creative with a new design while i need to produce a pair of identical earrings....

What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
My Lampshades, as they really moved me when i finished the first one, for years i've wanted to design a lampshade

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I knew what i'm not going to be: a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, Only when i was 20 i found my profession to be - I'm an industrial designer, but maybe i should have learned metal smith.....

What other shops out there do you love?
The most generous and colorful mosaic artist - Mistflower Studio
A very talented illustrator with tons of sense of humor – yaelfran
A wonderful mixed artist – HeliS
A jeweler which i love her color choices – rafya
A woman with exquisite taste - pamelatang

What does your future hold?
I believe that many new creations, maybe even with some recognition, happiness and hopefully some peace......
