Jewelry Statement

My work is inspired by nature – trees, birds, shells – but always mitigated by man and by the urban environment – parks and gardens rather than moors and wildernesses. My jewellery deals with certain qualities: a balance between symmetry and irregularity; the contrast between soft organic forms andthe very in-organic means by which they are made; a focus on surface colour and texture; the containment of secrets within or behind a form; a consideration of what preciousness is; and an empathy with the wearer,  making her feel more like herself.‘ 

Jane Adam makes sophisticated and sensual jewellery in dyed anodized aluminium, a medium in which her original techniques of colouring, mark making and forming have inspired a generation of jewellers. In more recent years, she has also been working in precious metals.

Jane Adam's aluminum jewelry is so unexpectedly colorful. With shades of blue and red, in anodized aluminum, so lightweight and easy to wear. I love the cuffs and wraps.
