These individually designed pieces may be richly coloured or make more subtle use of the wide range of colours available to the enameller, and are a painterly and evocative exploration of colour & imagery. Using the traditional techniques of champlevé and basse-taille, her work is a rich and evocative exploration of colour and imagery.

Trained in the 1970's in Jewellery Design at the Central School of Art and Design, and Silversmithing at the Royal College of Art, Jane has work in several collections including the V&A, the Fitzwilliam and Ashmolean Museums, the Queen Collection, and the Goldsmiths' Collection. ​
