Brooklyn based designer Jane D'Arensbourg began working with glass early in her career as an artist and became inspired by the unique properties of it as a vehicle to capture light, energy and fragility. The jewelry collection launched in 2002 in NYC.
In her studio, D’Arensbourg's process starts with raw, durable, borosilicate glass rods that are transformed with a torch free form. Borosilicate glass is one of the most shock resistant glass available which results in it being a surprisingly wearable material. Using heat and gravity D'Arensbourg honors the fragility and inherent elegance of the material, creating timeless and unique jewelry. Jane D’Arensbourg views her jewelry as functional art. A ring can function as a sculptural object sitting in your home waiting to be worn and experienced in another way.
Jane D'Arensbourg has exhibited her artwork and jewelry in museums and galleries internationally. Her work can be found in esteemed stock lists from New York to Japan as well as in the permanent collection of The Museum of Art Design, New York.
