Eleanor Bolton

Eleanor Bolton is a British jewellery and accessories designer based in London UK. 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. This technique now forms the basis for Eleanor’s collections. 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. 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, 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 Eleanor’s jewellery designs were selected for ‘Talente’, the annual review of the best new designs in Europe.
