Sextant Necklace Rachel Adams with Elizabeth Jane Campbell
The City Observatory on Calton Hill provided accurate time for sailors to navigate the globe from the Port of Leith using a ship’s sextant. Drawing on the hill’s history of astronomy and its rich geology, Rachel Adams’ necklace design combines traditional and digital production processes to celebrate local materials and manufacturing.
