Javori Designs

I’m so pleased that Yarn About Yarn is now the Australian stockist for Javori Designs Jewellery Kits.

You may have seen the kits in Vogue Knitting ( called Designer Knitting here in Australia). They are really very pretty and super quick to make.

I like the idea that the kits themselves would make great gifts but you could also knit up the pieces and gift those (if you could bear to give it away when you’re finished).

The name behind Javori Designs is Andi Javori.

and here is her story:

“Growing up around my grandparent’s clothing boutique in Europe I was exposed to fashion at a very early age. My best friend’s mother, who was a seamstress, introduced me to knitting when I was about 10 years old. For years I knit typical garments that over time left me with a desire to seek alternative ways to make my projects more interesting. I started by incorporating different materials such as rings, glass beads, pendants, wire, and chain, into my everyday knitted garments. These accents have become my specialty. I then took it one step further and started experimenting with knitted jewelry. My designs drew attention, which eventually led to international collectors, and the formation of my own knitting pattern and kit company, Javori Designs. With my knitting patterns and kits, I share some of my ideas and techniques so people can create unique knitting projects in their own homes.

When the rare moment of “downtime” arises, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing tennis, listening to cool jazz, reading, and traveling.

If you would like to list some recent publications my designs can be seen in this past year: Creative Knitting Magazine, Belle Armoire Magazine, Vogue Knitting
Upcoming publications (Winter 2013): Debbie Bliss Magazine, Knit ‘n Style, Creative Knitting, Vogue Knitting.”
