Jane Hamill's Profile

About

I've always had a love of shiny things and began making simple jewellery when I was 16. Now, nearly 20 years on, my designs have advanced, pieces have become much more intricate, and my hobby has become my passion. I use various metals, mainly sterling silver and copper, but I’m happy to utilize any material that comes to hand, with rarely a day passing without the conception of a new design.

There is no single major influence in my jewellery.

About

I've always had a love of shiny things and began making simple jewellery when I was 16. Now, nearly 20 years on, my designs have advanced, pieces have become much more intricate, and my hobby has become my passion. I use various metals, mainly sterling silver and copper, but I’m happy to utilize any material that comes to hand, with rarely a day passing without the conception of a new design.

My jewellery contains many contradictions; I have a deep appreciation of pattern & form, symmetry & tessellation, I am also beguiled by serendipity, chance, free-form & unpredictability. There is no single major influence in my jewellery. Ethnic cultures, the natural, industrial and technological worlds through the ages all have had some bearing on my designs and continue to intrigue and inspire me.

Being spontaneous creatively is important to me. I rely heavily on my natural instinct and a piece is complete only when it feels "right".

I'm always keen to add new skills to my repertoire, the most recent of which is glass work. The movement of the molten glass both mesmerises & exhilarates me and I’m eagerly anticipating the designs I will produce as my expertise develops.

I hope you like my work - I believe my enthusiasm for what I do is reflected in my finished pieces. I derive great satisfaction from not only making my own jewellery with my own beads, but also from seeing my beads used in beautiful pieces of art made by my customers.

I list my Steampunk inspired work in a separate Etsy shop under the name Rusty Petherbridge - the shop is called Steamjunque and can be found here: http://steamjunque.etsy.com
