What comes first to your mind when vintage crochet is mentioned? Is it potholders, doilies or blouses?
For me it's tablecloths and doilies. My grandma was a master crocheter and she made enormously big and mindbogglingly intricate and complex tablecloths and centerpieces. Not to mention the tons of doilies she made to relax between projects! Now that I have my own small crochet business I realize the time, effort, energy and love she invested in each of her crochet pieces. Being the first of her 5 granddaughters, I had the honor of inheriting many of her creations and the other reason is that my cousins weren't as madly in love with them as I was.
On that note, I recently received an order for the above vintage inspired bracelet / cuff and though I almost never accept orders due to my hectic working schedule, I felt the vintage crochet flame devouring me and I accepted it. This being one of my most favourite bracelets, I just couldn't say no.
I also follow the vintage crochet on instagram and I chose several pieces to make an inspiration board. Enjoy!
