Lazy Cat Gifts-Artisan crochet bead jewelry & fiber art

This shop brings two very different mediums and morphs them together crochet and jewelry making...I can see in some of her pieces the intricacy of wire knotting, this in and of itself is no easy task it is daunting and painful to the fingers...and I am just talking about average wire work, this is something completely different. Wire is an unforgiving medium in the first place then to try to crochet it, wow I have a lot of admiration for this artist! I consider myself a very traditional jewelry maker in my style and technique, its artists like these that give hand made jewelry or anything hand made a step above any store bought item there is!

From the Artist:

"Lazy Cat Gifts was created by three friends in Ann Arbor, MI. Two of them were in medical school at the University of Michigan and the third worked in a laboratory there. All of us had grandmothers who crocheted, however Kelly had the most experience.

After honing our skills for several years making many gifts for many family members and friends, we decided to try to sell some of our creations! We had a good start at a local craft show and found while searching for a gentle way to beginning selling online. (Plus, Etsy comes with the bonus of a great community of artists!) Etsy is also great for us, because Kelly has moved to Philadelphia, while Allison and Stasia still live in Ann Arbor. However, we keep in touch every day! And, we are all so excited Kelly is moving back to Ann Arbor in June!

We enjoy using the skills from our grandmothers to create wonderfully hip and modern pieces. We crochet in both yarn and wire, creating artisan crochet bead jewelry, scarves, hats, etc. We are constantly looking for ways to expand crochet, and we love making custom items!

We are updating our store all the time, so please check back often to see what new goodies have appeared!

Additionally, our Boutique line of jewelry is currently available at Suwanee Springs at 306 S. Main St. in Ann Arbor, MI. Please stop in to see these exclusive pieces!

In the past, we have featured Kelly's mom's items in "Ruth Ellen's Creations" as she is unable to make her own website. Hopefully her beautiful quilts and tasty dog treats will return soon.

Thank you for such a nice feature! Wire is very unforgiving--which makes it so different to crochet with than yarn!
