Since childhood Jane has been surrounded by art and creativity. Her mother, a jewelry and metal artisan, shared her passion and encouraged her artistic pursuits. After studying sculpture and jewelry-making at RISD, Jane opened her jewelry studio in 1983 in the vibrant SoHo neighborhood of New York City.
Jane’s forte is creating detailed patterns, such as alligator skin, pebble grain, centuries-old paisleys and flirty florals in precious metals. Also evident throughout her collections is her love of color. Watery blues, peacock greens, and blush pastels are beautifully combined. Jane’s signature style, the gorgeous fusion of both textures and colors in gold, silver and platinum, is both elegant and easy to wear.
Her heirloom quality jewelry has been exhibited by museums and art galleries, featured in fashion magazines and represented by fine jewelry stores across the country. Industry accolades include numerous AGTA Spectrum Awards, World Gold Council, Perles de Tahiti and Platinum Guild International awards. Additionally, she has been featured in numerous jewelry publications including Brilliance a book about the American Jewelry Design Council and in the award winning book Profiting by Design.
She is committed to handcrafting her jewelry in America with the talent of NYC artisans. Jane enjoys living in Manhattan with her husband, television director Jean De Segonzac, and their daughter, a photography student who carries on her family’s creative heritage.
