The Busy Box Room
CONTEMPORARY JEWELLERY & GLASS GIFTS BY JAN WARD
ABOUT THE MAKER
I create contemporary jewellery and glass gifts from my ‘Box room’ here in Derbyshire. My designs are inspired by architecture and geometry and my work is available to buy here or at galleries locally.
I make all of the jewellery products myself and specialise in combining silver & gold to create beautiful colour & texture contrasts. My jewellery is commonly minimalist in appearance and many pieces include small semi-precious gemstones. More recently I have started to incorporate fused glass into my jewellery designs and have also further branched out into larger fused glass products.
Artisan & Producers Markets
I am pleased to announce that I am showcasing my work at a number of events in Derbyshire throughout 2019 including Dronfield Hall Barn, Holmesfield local market and Haddon Hall summer & Christmas markets. Products will include light catchers, candle stands, wall art and jewellery. Alongside the glass work there will also be a selection of sterling silver jewellery.

Haddon Hall Summer & Christmas Markets
I am thrilled to be attending these events having been to the Spring market there earlier this year. What a treat to find room after room full of fresh produce such as marshmallow, bread and cake alongside wooden gifts, mosaic and unusual lighting. The Summer market will be held outside the house in marquees by the river. For more information visit the Haddon Hall website https://www.haddonhall.co.uk/special-events/
