About Jayne Redman

 Nature provides an endless reference for imagination and invention. The linear quality of stems and the fullness of flower buds inspire my jewelry. I enjoy integrating mechanics with design, allowing each piece to function in a visually intriguing way. I work with multiples of the same shape engineering them to fit precisely giving an abstract impression of their botanical origin. Many years of metalsmithing have taught me the power of simplicity. My forms begin as flat metal shapes and arrive as small sculptures. Their complexity is in their conception as curving planes of origami.

Jayne Redman earned her B.F.A. in Jewelry and Silversmithing from Maine College of Art in 1977.

She started her own company, Jayne Redman Jewelry, in 1982 and began developing her award winning Floraforms® Collection in 1995. She has exhibited her work at fine craft shows for over thirty years and is represented by fine jewelry galleries and stores across the country.
