Knitty Pretty

She was known for spinning skeins of yarn into cozy keepsakes for all her close knits. Amy Pfaffman uses sections of vibrant, retired aluminum knitting needles to create this dazzling necklace. She breathes new life into the crafter's number-one companion by fanning out 14 pieces in a panoply of shades across a sturdy steel chain. Handmade in California.

Amy knew she was a designer when instead of playing with dolls in her dollhouse as a kid, she mostly focused on decorating the interior. Check out our Q&A with her on the blog.

“I love that I get to use my creativity to make things other people can use and enjoy, work from home in my studio with an amazing view and three kitty cats, and meet incredible people when I do shows.”

Amy Pfaffman's degree in industrial design from Rhode Island School of Design in 1990 cemented her appreciation for functional objects. In her jewelry she elevates functional objects to art using cold connections and mechanical joints paired with sterling silver. As jewelry, the ordinary becomes ornament, and we look at it in an entirely different way. She hopes to inspire others to appreciate the beauty in the things they use every day and know that great thought was put into their design.
