The OTOLITH BOLO is an adjustable bolo mechanism that slides smoothly along braided silk cord to fit your neck size or styling preference. It is handmade in small batches in our Sydney studio, cast from sterling silver and threaded onto hand dyed kumihimo silk cord. The base silk cord is woven by an artisan collective in Kyoto, before being dyed by us in our studio with the cowprint pattern. The bolo can be worn as a bold statement piece, or paired with pieces from the same lineage, such as our Otolith Locket or Otolith Earrings.

… an ossified relic gleaned from dusk – a swirling of bird-siren follows close behind. a branched helm dependent; carved to ground, unified limbs a-fixed – to find itself in the ebb and flow...
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
‘...and then the water whispered’ is inspired by the connective forces of flowing water, weaving through rock and soil, bone and battered gums, to find its way back to the great oceanic body. Through two winter residencies, one in the Snowy Mountains (Ngarigo Country) and the other in Kangaloon (Dharawal Country), we studied the land and how its been shaped by water, to develop our new collection.
