Inspired by the most indispensable accessory of 18th and 19th century ~ the Albertina watch chain with delightful tassel charms.

Handcrafted Jewelry by Jenne Rayburn incorporating Piercing & Sawing

March 10, 2014 § Leave a comment

Many of my designs are two-dimensional graphic interpretations of the world around me, cut from metal sheet and then hammered. This involves using a saw frame with a very fine blade to cut out intricate shapes, such as the animals and symbols featured in the Ark Collection of necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

Piercing is the jewelry technique of slicing through metal using a saw. The metal is cut starting at the sheet’s edge, or a drill is used to poke a hole through the center in which the saw’s thin blade can enter. Piercing allows you to extract bits of metal to produce specific, handcrafted pieces.

Totemic Necklaces ~ Iconic Animal Inspired Jewelry

August 31, 2013 § 1 Comment

I have been spending a lot of time thinking about totemic animal jewelry, and crafting new necklace designs for fall! The inspiration for my handcrafted jewelry and accessories comes from thinking about the role of cultural narrative in constructing identity. My process is to create narratives for my work that intertwine ideas about mythology and tradition, creating a collection of animal jewelry was a natural evolution of this exploration, because animals play key roles in many culture’s creation myths where they are essential to survival, are respected as equals and are meaningful representations of human potential.
