The artist behind Jan E O Jewelry is, me, Jan E. O’Banion. With a handful of books and a couple of workshops, I am primarily a self taught jewelry artist. Basket weaving skills have morphed into freeform wire wraps. The transformative energies of fire are celebrated in hand forged fold form pieces. A love of the earth inspires the usage of found, recycled or repurposed materials whenever possible
Inspired by nature, her designs are bold, organic and tribal, with an earthy flair. The choice of materials influences the design so many pieces are one of a kind.
