Crochet Rose By Elena Lepretre

Crocheting over a wire helps this rose hold its shape.

The Designer: Elena Lepretre

Inspired by Nature, Eléna Leprêtre creates realistic 3D crochet flowers, jewelry and accessories. Everything started when a distant image of a flower crocheted by her talented grandma rises in her memory and gives birth to “Nature aux Fils”. Because Eléna considers herself a bad crocheter, she invents her own techniques that permit her to obtain the needed result quite easily. She is looking for a creative reuse in everything she sees, and tries to innovate, and create something unusual yet beautiful. Linguist by profession, crafter and artist in her soul, she crochets and eternalizes her nature and invites you to her universe!
