Eleanor Bolton is probably the first and only ferosh designer that makes really chic jewelry from rope.
a pretty unusual material but is able to send our recyclofashionistas running to pay for it.
“I have developed my own craft technique coiling and stitching cotton rope, which I write patterns for as you would for knitting or crochet. Forms develop out of a combination of intuitive material experimentation and the shared visual language of eclectic sources. The movement, knotting and twisting of the coils reveals the striking stitching in contrasting colours, while their form as large-scale jewellery pieces, celebrates the softness and tactility of the material and creates a sense of presence.”
