Charming, complex, and full of contagious energy, Jianhui Yan has been an innovator in the world of fashion jewelry since he opened his London studio in 2006. He takes much of the inspiration and material for his work from from rural China, where he grew up. His current project, “Next Pashima”, focusing on light, lush, and feisty necklaces, uses sustainable materials and increases our awareness of the possibilities of recycling. The very versatile multi-strand necklaces, seen below, and at Once In A Blue Moon, are designed to be worn in a number of ways. A little elegant, a little funky.
