There are two series in production. The "Crochet" series: is made out of 100% cotton thread, normally used for crocheting laces. Inside the crochetwork there are glassbeads to hold the form. The designs are classic, but feature the textile surface and the colours which normally are not connected to jewellery, the pieces look contemporary. (The jewellery from this series can be washed).
The "Stick" series: is made out of silver or gold (black is oxidised silver) combined with pearls or corals. This Series was the first to be intoduced to the public, the pieces are very romantic and delicate.
