Making Multiples with Jayne Redman
Jayne Redman is known for her unusual way of working with metal in three dimensions, often using multiples of the same shape to convey a single idea. Using nature as her inspiration she considers combinations of form and function, integrating mechanics with design and applying innovative engineering techniques.
As Jayne developed her collection of jewelry, she found it necessary to create ways to speed up her production process and make it easier to duplicate her designs. She made her own blanking dies to cut out shapes in silver and gold sheet and invented tools and jigs to form her pieces precisely.
Jayne now teaches workshops around the country on her methods of making multiples. She manufactures a line of tools that she sells through Rio Grande and on her website, www.jayneredmanjewelry.com.
Jayne will be talking with us about her journey as a metalsmith, the tools and jigs she has invented, and how she uses multiples to create her unique jewelry.
