Jan Huntley




Art to Wear

Porcelain & Print



I love the idea of wearing something new, that has a history, a narrative, a wearable object that inspires, feels beautiful and looks elegant and is that little bit extraordinary


Accessories taken from the pages of a fairy tale: sculpted woven chokers, bracelets, collars, cuffs and rings incorporating crystals, glass and precious stones, silks and found objects. Through her work, Jan creates enduring pieces of wearable art.   Jan’s beautiful, elegant silk neck pieces and highly textured nuno felt wraps are in private collections across England.


 Vintage textiles have always been my inspiration, printing them into silver and fine porcelain to create beautiful unique jewellery, porcelain tableware and small sculptures.


Jan started her career with Zandra Rhodes and went on to work for Jean Muir, David and Elizabeth Emmanuel and also in an international capacity for the Queens dressmaker, Norman Hartnell.


 Jan also has a degree in Sculpture and Fine Art and it is this interface between creative inspiration, innovative techniques and exquisite detailing which make her work truly unique. Jan works and teaches from her studio and home at: Hayloft Studio Crofts Farmhouse Leasgill Milnthorpe Cumbria LA7 7EX.
