Jane Adam’s jewellery explores female sensuality, both in the nature of the forms themselves and in the way they feel when worn. Her most profound relationship as a maker is with the wearers of her jewellery. Adam works with her materials, both precious metals and anodised aluminium, pushing them to find out what they will do. She sets out conditions so that they behave in a certain way, applying techniques of texturing and forming, exploring and exploiting their particular properties. This approach gives her work an organic quality, which relates to natural forms and to the way they change and grow.
