Knot

A necklace, bracelet and earrings all featuring freshwater pearls strung using traditional pearl knotting techniques. This set references classic pearl jewellery; using its forms to comment on the purity and virtue historically associated with 19th-century gentry members succumbing to TB. Tangled knots of pearl found along the necklace and bracelet push the realities of this romanticisation, as do the cold, angular box clasps.
