- Designed in New York by Jane Diaz, hand-made in Nepal
New York Native Jane Diaz has collaborated with Nepalese metalsmiths for twenty-six years creating a unique hand-made line of designer jewelry. A background in fine art, anthropology, and dance combined with a life-long passion for ritual and ornamentation led to her success as a designer. Tying all these interests together, she envisions a collection of jewelry perfectly matched with traditional hand-made techniques of Nepal. As the industrial world expands to consume many ancient crafts, Jane Diaz values the one of a kind distinction of the “human touch” to each individual piece. It is important to her to keep the skills of these craftsmen alive.
