SerpentSea create stunning and intricate home accessories and jewellery pieces, with a nautical and Greek mythology inspired theme, from recycled marine rope.
Floor mats, key rings, bracelets and chokers are some of the items made by Serpent Sea, crafted using knotting and weaving techniques used by sailors for centuries.
Four different knots have been used in the creation of SerpentSea’s hardwearing mats, which can be used for both indoors and outdoors, featuring reclaimed marine rope in a variety of colour ways. Each weighty mat takes about four hours and 150 feet of rope to assemble.
The key rings, which can be used as good luck charms, are each named after one of the sea nymphs in Greek mythology who often accompanied Poseidon, God of the Sea, to protect and help sailors fighting storms.
The bracelets and chokers are particularly stunning. The chokers, which come in black, are statement pieces featuring a detailed circular knotting system. While the bracelets, which includes a stunning nautical navy cuff-style bracelet, can be worn in honour of the water element and as a form of protection.
SerpentSea was founded in 2011 by New Yorker Sophie Aschauer who started making mats out of recycled marine rope after a sailing trip to Nantucket.
