Jane DiazNew York City native Jane Diaz has collaborated with Nepalese metalsmiths for fifteen years to create a unique hand-made line of designer jewelry. An academic background in cultural anthropology, fine art and dance combined with a life-long passion for ritual and ornamentation led Ms. Diaz to her success as a designer. Tying all her knowledge and interests together, she envisioned a collection of jewelry perfectly matched with the traditional fabrication techniques of Nepal. As the industrial world expands to consume many ancient crafts, Ms. Diaz values the one of a kind distinction offered by the “human touch” to each individual piece. Jane Diaz designs her jewelry as a way to express her life experience. The confetti of charms in Ms. Diaz’s jewelry line makes up a spiritual symbolism that has come out of personal inquiry, extensive world travel and cultural studies. Painterly colors characterize her necklaces and bold forms distinguish her earrings. Hers are wearable ornaments to celebrate everyday and special occasions alike.
