Made in Cornwall

We continue our series showcasing some of the incredible makers and designers in our county with this beautiful silver ‘cut out’ jewellery
Like many talented makers, Huiyi Tan began jewellery making as a hobby in 2009 but it has quickly grown into a job.
She still works as an interior designer in Cornwall and studied a master’s degree in jewellery design. We love her exquisite tiny cut out pieces of jewellery. She took the plunge to set up Huiyitan in February 2009 and now sells online through her Etsy.com shop. In her first year she sold one pair of ear studs and three years later she’s had more than 2,000 sales. Her best sellers are her quirkier items such as moustache pendants.
