In a humorous act of self-aggrandisement, the jeweller uses Cook & Co to transform herself from solitary artist to fashion institution. Her jewellery however, is far from elitist. Rather, it exhibits an overarching degree of democracy. In a show of ‘mutual appreciation,’ the founder of Cook & Co makes a (literal) cameo appearance. With her characteristic ponytailed silhouette, the artist’s profile adorns the breast of HRH Queen Elizabeth II and The Queen’s adorns hers.
