The Jewellery of Nora Fok

The first ever retrospective exhibition tour by the extraordinary jeweller, textile artist and 3D designer Nora Fok will be on show at the Harley Gallery in January 2011.


The artist has established herself as a pioneering maker, crafting her delicate, intricate forms from nylon microfilament. Nora makes her work by hand using techniques she has taught herself: knitting, knotting, tying, weaving, plaiting. The list is deceptively simple, her chosen material of nylon monofilament is fine and hard to work but her results are spectacular. These pieces are often very complicated and take many hours, days or weeks to produce.

Nora makes her jewellery for the whole of the female body, inspired by mathematics and complex geometry. She is intrigued by the world around her and fascinated by natural forms, structure, systems and order, and the mysteries and magic that she sets out to capture in her work.
The exhibition will include an ambitious new, large-scale work based on her fascination with the double helix structure of DNA. This sculptural piece has been achieved through a tour de force of knitting: over 3500 nylon spheres dyed in four colours were needed, taking much longer than even Nora expected.
This exhibition has also prompted Nora’s groundbreaking new limited edition range of jewellery; making her labour intensive pieces more affordable through new technologies. This very special collection of bracelets has been made using rapid prototyping technology and a form of rapid manufacturing called ‘3D Printing’. The collection is only available while stocks last, first available at the Harley Gallery.
Nora moved from Hong Kong to the UK in 1980 to study at Brighton Polytechnic. She was a Jerwood Contemporary Makers 2010 winner (the final Jerwood Contemporary Makers) and was shortlisted for the prestigious Jerwood Prize for Applied Arts in 2007.
