Artist's statement

Eleanor Bolton is a British jewellery designer and maker based in London. During her MA at the Royal College of Art, Eleanor developed a unique craft technique, coiling and hand stitching cotton rope to create lightweight tactile jewellery. Often sculptural in quality, Eleanor’s 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. The use of stitching and rope combined with a continuing desire to innovate define Eleanor’s practice, while her signature bold colours create strong aesthetic appeal.

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2010, Eleanor’s designs have received high profile press attention including having her 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. Eleanor now continues to exhibit and sell widely in the UK and internationally and works to commission with both private and commercial clients.

Before studying at the RCA Eleanor completed her BA (Hons) in Jewellery Design at The Cass [London Metropolitan University] and worked for renowned London jewellery designers including Hannah Martin, Laura Tabor and Tatty Devine.
