Components by Fern Jelleyman


Merging elements of climbing technology and knitted neon yarns, Components is a contemporary jewellery range by Fern Jelleyman – a recent graduate of Central Saint Martins college of art and design in London.

Employing the use of a dubbed-bed knitting machine, Jelleyman uses neon cotton and polyester yarn to create metres and metres of tubing, with a traditional circle or square knot forming the rope. The anodized aluminium components are factory cast-offs, while the carabiner hooks and climbing clasps, used as fastenings, are sourced from DMM – a Welsh manufacturer of climbing hardware in the UK.

Minimal in nature with a bold neon colour palette, the jewellery range boasts the mantra of having no restrictions – offering multiple possibilities to wear the jewellery around the wrist, neck and waist, with varying layers and lengths.

The Components range was exhibited at the New Designers: Part 1 graduate show at the Business Design Centre in London from June 27 to July 1 2012.
