The whippletree was once used to harness horses together in formation; to combine their individual strengths as one, for working a plough.
Viewed upside down, a sketch of a whippletree looks like the bones of a mobile.
We have created our own whippletree, harnessing together the contemporary jewellery from eight designer makers. Every jewellery piece has been designed around the concept of tension, weights, pivots and balances. Together, each individual ring or pendant is suspended in the one whippletree, harnessing the room.
