Based in Sheffield, former teacher Beth Pegler began making and selling textile jewellery in 2015, and now produces two collections of knotted rope jewellery a year. Her large bold pieces are a riot of colour and texture, and have proved an instant hit due to their ability to add an uplifting statement to any outfit, day or night.
Textile-based jewellery is bold and impactful, but it’s also lightweight, so it’s really easy to wear. Feedback I’ve had from some customers is the jewellery is especially good for mums with small babies, because it’s soft and they can’t catch themselves on it, or easily damage the pieces. I’ve also been told that it’s good for older people who can’t do up fiddly clasps.
