Jacqueline Cullen — Episode 2: Whitby Jet at Donna Karan


The British jewelry designer is the only person on our planet working with Whitby jet in a contemporary fashion.

Ms. Cullen came to my attention last year when Edwina Ings–Chambers wrote in the September 10 Financial Times about her spectacular creations with this unique material.


The designer was kind enough to email me this afternoon with news of her upcoming show of sculptural Whitby jet jewelry ("jewellery," in the English parlance) at Donna Karan's flagship store in London's Mayfair district.

Her large–scale, sculptural Whitby jet pieces will be displayed on nine plinths throughout the store beginning Tuesday, March 28 (that's a week from this coming Tuesday if you're calendar–challenged) and will remain up for two months.


If you'd like to acquire a piece I suggest you visit early rather than later; I predict this show will sell out in a Mayfair minute.

The address: 19 New Bond Street, London W1S 2RD; 44 (0) 2074 953100.

Oh, I see how it is: now you've got your knickers in a twist about whether the show will be sold out by the time it opens.

You're so fortunate: here's Ms. Cullen's email address: info@jacquelinecullen.com; tel: 44 (0) 7989 470246


Give her a holler and you'll be able to number yourself among the chosen instead of the hosen.

Feel free to tell her I sent you but I must say that if I were you I wouldn't breathe a word.

A piece of Whitby jet -- indeed, Whitby the locale -- was a tiny plot key in A.S. Byatt's _Possession_. I didn't see the movie so I do not know if jet played a supporting role or not.
