The Coiled Necklace by Eleanor Bolton, a British jewelry designer based in London, will strike people in at least one of two ways. Some people will be astounded by the obvious craftsmanship behind the accessory while others will think that it looks like an oversized phone cord. The latter will then scoff at the 375 pound price tag while the former will nod in understanding, perhaps even justifying the purchase in their head as they do.
Handmade to order in England, the Coiled Necklace by Eleanor Bolton is an impressive 12 meter cotton rope. It was inspired by a mix of sources including nautical knotting, cats cradle, fisherman’s jumpers, sculptural knitting, reptiles and, of course, telephone cords.
