Sculptural, sensual and tactile – every nuance of a real knotted rope has been interpreted by Hannah’s hands.

The ‘Aguila Dorada’ collection grew from a sense of adventure. The narrative of the collection derives from a wild and reckless character – a man who has sailed the seven seas and has returned with chilling tales to tell and dark secrets to keep. An untameable, unpredictable adventurer.
Much of my visual research was quite piratical. I was looking at old galleons and ships that may have transported my hero around the world. I became fascinated by knots and rope and their incredible sculptural qualities.
With this ring I liked the idea of a rope quite literally being tied around your finger, but the rope had to be beautiful. It had to feel like a piece of sculpture and have a certain sensuous feel. I wanted to capture the sensation that this piece of jewellery could be a part of an ancient treasure hoard, but could equally be something super modern.
To achieve the sculptural nature of the ring I carved the shape by hand, focusing on the voluptuous feeling of the curves in the rope. The richness and warmth of the yellow gold, as well as its satisfying weight add to the sense that this could be a lost antiquity, wrestled from the clutches of a dangerous pirate. Or at least I like to think so.
