Yvonne Beale

Yvonne Beale creates innovative jewellery and accessories in crochet and knitting, influenced by the design and couture of the 1940s. She inherited her lifelong love of knitting and crochet from her family, having learnt the skills as a child from her mother and grandmother. As a teenager, Beale began creating her own knit designs for family and friends.

With over 30 years experience in knitting & crochet and training in fashion design at the Grafton Academy of Fashion in Dublin, Yvonne now designs & crafts innovative crochet leather jewellery & belts for the women of today.

Drawn to knitting & crochet as a child, Yvonne has always loved to change the pattern & break the rules on recommended yarns!  Today her award-winning innovative designs style knitting & crochet stitches in pure leather to look contemporary.

As identified by leading US craft magazine, Vogue Knitting, Yvonne’s designs illustrate “……the genius of liberating traditional Irish crochet motifs……” with a “…..a funky modern aesthetic”.

On presenting her first collection at Showcase 2011, Ireland’s premier craft trade show, Yvonne scooped top awards for Best New Product & Jewellery design.

Recognition of Yvonne’s designs keeps on coming with short-listings for Ireland’s National Crafts Awards in 2011 & 2013, noted finalist in Ireland’s Fashion Innovation Awards, selected display at US Exhibition, Solas Nua, a showcase for contemporary Irish Arts.  In 2012, Yvonne became one of a select list of Irish designers on the Premium Craft Portfolio.  In the US, First Lady Michelle Obama enjoys Yvonne’s design & they continue to be seen on display most recently with established Irish dress designer Helen McAlinden.
