UK-based artist Nora Fok creates wearable textiles inspired by science and math, using nylon microfilament. Hand-woven, knitted, braided and knotted, a single piece can take weeks to finish. Her delicate, intricate structures push jewelry to a new dimension, transforming organic forms into wearable, ethereal sculpture.

She likes to draw attention to the very ordinary to make something special by presenting it in her own way. Her approach is not scientific; she combines her discoveries intuitively with her personal technical skills to produce her unique pieces.
