Innovative neck pieces by Nora Fok

Nora Fok is an artist who expresses her ideas in a personal and distinctive way. She has a unique ability to translate ideas into delightful delicate and intricate compositions which one immediately associates with her.

Nora works at home in Hove, on the sunny south east coast of England, she uses no mechanical equipment, all her work is carried out by hand processes, with only basic tools.

I find her works totally inspired by nature, be it the Universe or a plant. Official site.
