Jacqueline Cullen Jewellery has been introduced to Australia by BECKER MINTY and is exclusively available from our stores.
Jacqueline Cullen is an English jewellery designer specialising in contemporary Whitby jet. Jacqueline has developed innovative processes and formats that celebrate rather than disguise the inherent flaws and inclusions of Whitby jet allowing the natural beauty of the material to speak for itself removed from connotations of death, grief and morbidity.
Jacqueline is inspired by dramatic acts of nature, a placid sky ripped open by a slash of lightening, a volcano erupting, a cliff edge left jagged from erosion. Hiatuses inform her aesthetics and the interruption or breaking up of a bold, fluid form is central to her work where fractures, fissures and crevices release a luxurious cascade of textured gold or glittering diamonds.
Jacqueline Cullen is the only person working with Whitby jet in a non-traditional and design led way and she remains committed to introducing this ancient and sensual material to a contemporary audience.
