Solid sterling silver is shaped and  transformed into unique jewellery using a torch, hammers, saws and other traditional and non-traditional tools.  Jan's love of colour is often brought into these pieces using an assortment of carefully selected beads and gems, and objects.

Her extensive collection of beads consists of greatly varied shapes, sizes, colours, and materials.  These treasures include, but are not limited to:  semi-precious stones from all corners of the eartth; fairly traded hand-made sterling silver from Bali and the Karen Hill Tribes; one of a kind hand-made glass lampwork beads from self representing artists;  Swarovski (r) Crystals; antiques from Europe; and organic gems such as amber and mother of pearl.
