London, United Kingdom
Eleanor Bolton is a British jewellery and accessories designer based in London UK. During her MA at the Royal College of Art she developed a unique craft technique, coiling and hand stitching cotton rope to create lightweight tactile jewellery. This technique now forms the basis for her collections. Sculptural in quality, the jewellery comes from her focus on an intuitive and sensitive approach to the micro details of making processes, as well as to the precise scale of the pieces.
This attention to detail, combined with the innovative use of the materials define Eleanor's approach and strong aesthetic appeal, forming an alternative point of view on the boundaries between art and design.Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2010, the designs have received high profile press attention including having Eleanor's MA graduate collection featured in Vogue Paris. Eleanor's designs have been showcased in exhibitions at major galleries including the Saatchi Gallery and the V&A in London, the Museum of Arts & Design in New York and Galerie Marzee in the Netherlands. In 2011 her jewellery designs were selected for ‘Talente’, the annual review of the best new designs in Europe.Since the label launched in 2010, the collections are sold through both fashion boutiques and design galleries. Eleanor also works to commission with both private and commercial clients. All Eleanor Bolton jewellery is lovingly hand crafted in her London studio and on wearing a piece of Eleanor Bolton jewellery one should feel as if adorned by beautifully crafted piece of tactile sculpture.Read less
