About this project

In this range of pleated textile jewellery I am exploring the unusual properties of the Möbius strip and other twisted figures, to create pieces that can be worn in more than one way. For example, a neckpiece may be arranged to reveal more or less of the differently coloured sides or a piece may be used as either a neckpiece or a bracelet. Some of these twisted pieces will be included in the upcoming exhibition ‘Soft Engineering’, part of SIT Select Festival 2016 at Museum in the Park, Stroud.

Neckpiece/bracelet
Photographer: Ann Richards
This piece can be worn as a neckpiece with two twists in it (as shown on the left) or it can be collapsed upon itself to form a double layer Möbius strip which can be worn as a bracelet (shown on the right).
Trefoil Knot Neckpieces
Photographer: Ann Richards
Silk, steel and linen. These neckpieces take the form of trefoil knots and can be arranged in different ways to show either of the differently coloured sides and reveal more or less of the 'knot' construction.
