Jan Ward – Jewellery Designer/ Maker

Jan Ward

I have been designing and handcrafting precious metal jewellery for 20 years. Recently I’ve made it my primary focus after several years as a secondary school teacher.

My business is called The Busy Box Room as a result of where I started working. Of course, I have since outgrown the box room and as a consequence I now work in my garage. Freezing in the winter, roasting in the summer (especially if the kiln is on). I work in silver and gold often combining and contrasting colours. Furthermore applying textures and surface finishes allows for endless variety of outcomes. Many of my designs draw inspiration from geometric shapes. Simplicity of form plays a large part in my work. Next, I hope to start combining silver and glass to create colourful jewellery with a precious element.

I mostly make pendants, earrings and rings however I am introducing bracelets to my ranges. I am open to commission work and have created a number of wedding rings.

Where To Find Me

I work from home in Whittlesey and presently sell via the internet, local shops and other events. Often I Pop-Up at Peterborough railway Station as a result of Virgin Trains local business promotions.

You can visit my website to view more products. In addition, see my work at Art In The Heart, Peterborough and Peterborough Museum.

Workshops

Having been a teacher for 13 years I still get the desire to pass on my skills to others. I teach workshops from home in a friendly and relaxed environment. My main teaching focus is silver jewellery and silver clay however I also now teach fused glass. Please see my website for further details or click on the link below.
