Beth is a textile jewellery designer and maker who works with rope, embroidery thread and macrame.
"Rope is a material that is affordable, sustainable, flexible and strong but lightweight. It can be manipulated in a way that completely transforms it. Learning different knots and seeing how, if repeated, they can be made into a necklace or bracelet was inspiring for me. I love that by using just my hands I can transform a humble, simple material into a statement piece of jewellery. These necklaces are large, bright and playful, but still light and easy-to-wear. They are statement pieces, designed to be as impactful as the outfit they are worn with.
I started out by making jewellery solely for me to wear. I had little money and wanted to make pieces that would instantly lift and add to an outfit. However, by sharing my work online (mainly via Instagram) it gradually became clear that jewellery made with rope in bold colours was popular. I am fortunate that over the years my business has developed. All of the pieces are made in my small studio in my home in Sheffield - working from home allows me to balance making and looking after my four children."
