Announcement   Wire medium in traditional lacemaking techniques opens unlimited potential for creative expression.

Welcome to Lenka's Wire Lace Supplies, a unique shop that caters to the needs of adventurous lacemakers, spirited artists, passionate jewellers and one-of-a-kind fashion designers.

If you are inspired to learn making bobbin and needle lace with wire, you need good tools and good materials to make your effort worthwhile. And that is exactly what I strive to provide - specialized lacemaking bobbins, pillows and accessories, and high grade wires for lace art, sculpture and jewellery.

I have been making wire lace for 25 years, and teaching it for almost twenty years, so I thoroughly understand all challenges that the medium poses to lacemakers. Therefore, in 2017, I have written a manual "Wire Lacework: Lenka's Introduction to Bobbin Lace in Wire", with an aim to assist lacemakers around the world with a smooth transition from fibre to wire. Basic Series of Patterns & Tutorials followed, each title being dedicated to a particular wire lace technique.

More patterns are planned for 2019. Add this shop to you favourites if you want to receive notifications about new products.

Detailed description is provided for every item in this shop. If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask - I will be happy to help.

Enjoy browsing, shopping... and lacemaking :)

About

Keeping lacemaking tradition alive for future generations.

Wire Lace Supplies shop has grown organically and slowly over last 25 years. I am a lacemaker and lace designer, and have always used lace in my own, creative way. As all fine crafts, handmade lace evolves and expands, and I explore ways of working with metal. Designing specialized lacemaking bobbins and pillows and sourcing high quality materials became a necessity, because there is nothing more frustrating and time consuming than working with wrong tools and wrong wire. I am happy to share the results of my work, which is a result of my passion for traditional lace craft, with anybody who wants to learn. Etsy shop allows me to reach out to lacemakers, designers and creative artist around the world, and inspire them to keep beautiful lacemaking tradition alive.
