EXHIBITION| Eleanor Bolton AW12

An MA graduate from the Royal College of Arts, Eleanor Bolton's main focus is well and truly stitched into accessories, especially of the statement kind. Taking inspiration from nautical vessels these pieces are hand stitched cotton rope, coiled and linked with gold or silver plated brass rings.When asked about the construction Eleanor informs us that each piece is labour intensive, with it taking 1 hour to stitch a 15cm coil. She also likes the idea of taking low grade raw materials and creating an object of desire. As heavy as the jewellery looks they are light weight hollow forms with adaptable style that would most definitely appeal to a wide audience.Eleanor's accessories are currently stocked in London's Dark Room with further stockists in New York and Paris.
