Unique Handcrafted Jewellery–Jane Gowans
With the abundance of high street stores selling jewellery as well as the multitude of jewellery available online it’s getting harder and harder to find unique looking jewellery and that is why I was so ecstatic to discover Jane Gowans. Jane creates amazing metal based jewellery for men and women that is crafted by hand. Her jewellery is extremely wearable and she uses a metal called vermeil. The result is beautiful, unique, elegant and one of a kind exquisite jewellery. All pieces are produced by Jane in her studio in Scotland. Jane has a solid design background having graduated in 2009 with a first class degree in Jewellery and Metal Design. Her work is quickly getting her recognised and last year she was a finalist in the prestigious Art Jewellery Forum’s Emerging Artist of the Year. Not only does she create stunning collections but she also takes commissions and will work with you to create a truly individual piece that is truly you.
Personally the ring is my favourite piece. I love the slightly glitter effect to this jewellery and it’s quite understated so it would go with pretty much all the clothes I own. This is just a small selection of the jewellery in Jane’s collections. To see the rest of the pieces visit Jane Gowans online.
