Elinor Voytal graduated from Bucks University with a first class degree in knitted textiles. She received a great deal of interest in her graduate collection of statement jewellery pieces made using machine knitting techniques and intricate embellishment. Elinor went on to create jewellery collections using the techniques developed in these first graduate pieces.
Her designs are inspired by the fusion of hard metal and crystal elements into the soft, delicate and luxurious structures of fine knitting. She is inspired by the way the embedding of metal findings or embellishment of Swarovski crystals changes the feel and weight of the fabric. Colour is always an important part of her designs and she uses her own photography as inspiration.
Elinor’s jewellery has been shown in some of the UKs most prestigious jewellery galleries and can be bought online and through the establishments detailed on the stockists page.
Elinor has recently re-located her studio from North London to the beautiful Colne Valley in West Yorkshire where she continues to design and make her intricate textile jewellery.
