Le Collier de Bosse & L'Epissure Oroboro
In A Sailor’s Jewellery Set, knots have become objects.
Traditional and modern splicing techniques merge together, resulting in a set of jewels repurposing leftover rope, waxed thread and discarded stainless steel fittings.
Le Collier de Bosse, or also The Reef Necklace, was inspired by the technique of splicing in a braided cover onto ropes. This technique is usually applied to protect a well solicited part of the rope from tear, such as a reef line.
L’épissure Oroboro, or also The Oroboro Splice Bracelet, involves the technique of splicing an infinity loop out of a braided line to create a strong load loop.
