JAC­QUE­LINE CULLEN: REV­O­LU­TION­IS­ING WHITBY JET

Adorn - - PUBLISHERS NOTE -

One of the few jew­ellery de­sign­ers to work with Whitby jet, a gem­stone pop­u­larly found

in Whitby, York­shire, JAC­QUE­LINE CULLEN crafts con­tem­po­rary pieces speck­led with di­a­monds and granules of gold. The use of Whitby jet jew­ellery dates back to the Ro­man era and was mostly worn for mourn­ing dur­ing the Vic­to­rian pe­riod in Bri­tain. Once greatly mined, the gem­stone is now sourced mainly from aban­doned mines.
