Jane's hands work closely with her head to spin a fanciful range of unique, rare and thoughtful jewellery.
Reinventing the ordinary.
Reloving the forgotten.
Pinning down ideas in a pretty wearable way.
Jane's silver and gold contemporary jewellery is deeply influenced by her interest in textiles, pattern and shape. She experiments using various techniques to achieve a surface form similar to fabric the designs have an unusual twist.
On the other hand her use of wire in the cage designs reflect a delicate timeless piece of jewellery which can be worn in various positions.
Jane Gowans is a Scottish-based contemporary jeweller, on a mission to present everyone with the opportunity to wear accessories they truly love.
I am influenced by the simple lines of geometric forms and create contemporary designs made predominantly in silver.
I team the silver with non-precious materials, which often have a completely different use, thus changing them into wearable items of jewellery. Currently I am using hand-dyed birthday candle holders and cable ties in my 'Flower' series of jewellery.
The Scottish landscape influences Janet’s constantly evolving range of unusual textiles, jewellery and cards. Colour and texture are key elements of her work. She weaves and hand-paints chenille scarves and “tartan” with a difference, hand-knits scarves from exotic yarn and sews diaphanous feather wraps.
Her jewellery range includes necklaces and earrings of beach pebbles, silver and sea-glass and she also produces a selection of handmade photographic cards.
Knitwear and jewellery inspired by the Argyll area of Scotland.
The jewellery selection includes knitted, crocheted, french knitted, braiding and wirework. All of these pieces are unique and cannot be exactly replicated. We also make a selection of Rennaissance style jewellery based on portraits of the era.
Accessories include hand needlefelted bags, woven scarves with needle felted applique. We also have a wide selection of knitted and crocheted scarves.
I like to use forms which take the eye on a journey, and create pieces that morph shapes into one another. I also like to combine precious materials such as silver, gold and gems with non precious materials such as wood and resin.
Reflecting contemporary urban influences, I design original jewellery with a funky graphic aesthetic. Combining silver with alternative, modern materials, my work is handmade in limited numbers and distinguished by attention to detail in design and manufacture. Statement and humour inform the concept whilst geometric and technical intricacies structure the development.
Jen makes jewellery in silver and gold, inspired by landscapes around Scotland. She enjoys making pieces using a clients favourite landscapes and is most happy in her workshop.
Hand crafted stirling silver jewellery inspired by Modernist architecture.
