Knit With Clay

Why not?! Actually it is quite simple to knit with polymer clay. If you are interested to know a little bit more about this technique have a look at one of my previous posts here.

It is natural to think about knitting and knitwear - cosy jumpers, scarves and warm hand knit socks when it's winter. It is still cold, wet and quite miserable weather wise here in Ireland and so I thought it would be good time to show some of my recent polymer clay knitting. The good news are that I won't need to pack them away when it gets warmer.

I would like to think these accessories reflect the warm and comfy feelings we have when we wrap up warm in the winter, but the best part of it is the excellent texture. In my opinion this jewelry will look great with simple jersey top or dress.

For the most of my accessories I have mixed two or three colour polymer clay, it can be one color if that is what you are looking for, but multiple colors better show texture and has great effect.

My favorite is the Black and White Swirl lapel pin. What catches your eye?!


Most of the items you can see here are available at my Etsy shop online here.

A knitter only appears to be knitting yarn. Also being knitted are winks, mischief, sighs, fragrant possibilities, wild dreams. ~Dr. SunWolf

  2. Great idea to integrate knitting into clay jewellery. I'm not adventurous enough to try this, as I prefer wearing clay jewellery than making it, so I'll just admire it for now.

    1. Thank you Natalia, I think this technique is great and maybe a little bit unnecessarily forgotten in the polymer clay world.
