About Jan Taylor
I have been designing jewelry since 1975, and studied Art & Design at Florida Southern College. I have owned and operated a fine gold jewelry store for over 22 years; designing thousands of custom pieces for local clients. I sold the store many years ago to work on my passion, beautiful gems and stunning, one-of-a-kind jewelry. Now, all of this work is created in my little studio just outside of Denver, Colorado.
About 18 years ago, I became interested in pottery as a hobby. Since then, it has become my wonderful obsession to make beautiful, functional art. The unlimited design opportunities in clay make it challenging and fun. I strive to make unusual, quality pieces, with lots of detail; thus no two are alike.
I have always loved and appreciated fine and unusual gemstones since my jewelry store days, and feel fortunate to pursue my love of designing jewelry with these many beautiful stones. Each piece has been carved out of jeweler’s wax and lost-wax casted into gold or tarnish resistant silver. The pieces are then hand finished to ensure the quality and detail of each design.
The natural gemstones I use, are handpicked by myself and are some of the finest specimens. The faceted gemstones are superior in color, cut and clarity.
All designs, pottery and jewelry, are my own personal creations.
I am dedicated in creating beautiful, lasting pieces of art, be it in clay or precious metals and gemstones; all with a money back and quality workmanship guarantee.
I truly want you happy with your purchase.
