Jane Adam has an international reputation for her unique jewellery in anodised aluminium. This work is the result of twenty five years of innovation and experimentation with colour, form and texture. Jane uses the nature of the material itself to create form and texture by stressing and distorting it. She is particularly concerned with how a piece feels when it is worn. She creates work of great individuality and intensity of expression, which can be seen in galleries and collections throughout the world.
