Designer Jewelry Handmade in England by Huiyi Tan

Huiyi is working in the studio.
These snowflake pendants are ready to be cleaned in the pickle.
Every single item is hand sawn, hence every one is unique and has an individual character.
After soldering, they are all left to cool down naturally and slowly. "You can't rush art"!
We live in the beautiful English countryside. After work, I enjoy walking along the beach with my daughter.

Designer Jewelry Handmade By Huiyi Tan

We are Huiyi (pronounced "HwayYee") and David. I (Huiyi) was first trained to be an interior designer for my bachelor degree of science (year 2003) and later jewellery design for my master degree of art (year 2005) in the historical Birmingham Jewellery Quarter, UK. David studied fine art and design for his degrees and has been working as a graphic designer since that. Together we design and handmake all the jewellery we are selling, from our small home studio in Cornwall, UK.

Most of our designs are handmade using the traditional techniques which have been used to make jewellery for thousands of years. These designs of recognisable, pop icons and symbols from everyday life were originally hand drawn by myself, and later converted to digital artwork by David. We gradually added new designs to the range, and also offer a custom made service whereby we will create new designs for our customers upon request. We then often incorporate these designs into our collection, and so gradually our range grew to a collection of nearly 200 unique designs. Some of the requests were quite obscure, like the brontosaurus which has become one of our best sellers. We also added new designs ourselves for weddings, Halloween, Christmas, or just a rainy day and made them into ear studs, rings, necklaces and cufflinks. David and I both handle the design and artwork part of the creation, and I make the items from precious metals, we both share the packing and promotional working together as a team.
