About janiceartjewelry

My Journey in Metals

My Background:
I have a background in graphic design and still work in the industry.

My Jewelry Making Story:
I invested in my jewelry studio in 2008, purchasing a water torch and began a journey of finding my aesthetic point of view knowing that I wanted to combine my love of graphic design, pattern and typography into metal jewelry.

My Process:
All of my work is completely fabricated by me from flat sheet, wire and tubing and is produced on a made to order basis. Every piece is a one off so customizations can be done. My designs are created on computer and chemically etched into flat sheet metal. Etching is a technique with origins in printmaking dating back to 15th century Germany. Other texturizing techniques employed are stamping, traditional hand engraving with a graver, roller printing and hammering.

Making Green Jewelry and Social Entrepreneurship:
In 2011, I went to using almost all reclaimed precious metals in my work and switching to a natural pickle. I am an environmentally conscious person, so reducing my footprint happens in the studio where I can. March 2016, I took a class at Mendocino Art Center on Galvanic Etching. This is an alternative to the chemical etch process and uses electricity and battery charger with a solution that less toxic.

In mid 2015, I began, Janice Art Jewelry's "Tree Rings Project", in which a portion of ring sales go to Trees for the Future (trees.org) which plants trees and helps communities.

My Education:
I have attended classes at Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco and Mendocino Art Center in Northern California. In addition, I have also studied jewelry and metal arts at both California State Fullerton and Pasadena City College. I hold a BA in Studio Art from California State University, Fullerton and a diploma in Packaging Design from Humber College, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

2013-2015:
• Orange County Creatives, Laguna Beach, California
• La Galeria Gitana, San Fernando, California
• Harriet's General, Culpeper, Virginia
• Mountain Nest Gallery, Black Mountain, North Carolina
