Announcement    Update November 30, 2022:
Some wires are sold out and some are low in stock. More stock coming soon!

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.

Wire medium used in traditional lacemaking techniques opens unlimited potential for creative expression. 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 and accessories, and high grade wires for lace art, sculpture and jewellery.

I have been making wire lace for 30 years, and teaching it for almost as long, so I thoroughly understand 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 with a smooth transition from fibre to wire medium. Basic Series of Patterns & Tutorials followed, each title being dedicated to a particular wire lace technique. The pattern collection keeps growing as time allows.

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

Enjoy browsing, shopping... and lacemaking :)

About WireLaceSupplies

Sales 2,657
On Etsy since 2015

Keeping lacemaking tradition alive for future generations.

Wire Lace Supplies shop has grown organically and slowly over last 30 years. I am a lacemaker, designer, and instructor. A self-taught artisan, I 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 sourcing high quality materials for myself and my students have been an important part of my practice. 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 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 through a new and exciting medium - wire.
