Designer Bio

In 2001 Jane D'Arenbourg started making glass jewelry. As a sculptor, she was able to transform a-lot of her ideas into something wearable. Glass chain link is an element that Jane has used since 1995 in a-lot of her past sculptures, and glass installations. Glass chain was easily transformed into necklaces and earrings. The sound and movement of glass worn on the body intrigued her enough to investigate further. Jane uses borosilicate glass, also commonly known as "Pyrex" glass, and a technique called "flame-working", to make glass jewelry. Pyrex is one of the strongest forms of glass. Pyrex and Flame-working is primarily a scientific glass technique, used to make beakers and other scientific glassware. It is also more commonly known for its household cookware, which can withstand the heat of a direct flame on a stovetop, or in an oven. In 2008 Jane began incorporating porcelain elements in her glass jewelry. The contrast of materials, and techniques has found to be a harmonious pairing. Jane uses Pyrex glass rods, and a torch, stretching and bending shapes, freeform, and then fuses each piece individually. In working this way, she is able to get more intricate designs, than with glass blowing. The design possibilities are endless. The material glass continues to inspire Jane, unlike any other material.
