Eleanor Whitworth is a Glasgow based jeweller making wearable objects inspired by miniature curiosities in the natural world.
Eleanor's ongoing series is titled 'Together Living'. The pieces in it seek to celebrate some of the intricate symbiotic relationships at work in the natural world, many of them unobserved or misunderstood.
In Eleanor’s work, diverse materials are applied to mimic these instances of symbiosis. She considers tactility and light in each piece to invoke curiosity in viewers that reveals more than initially meets the eye.
