Jewelry since 1986
In 1989 Jane Kønig graduated from the Danish Design Academy as a clothing designer with accessories as an important part of her expression. Since then, she has been designing jewelry and accessories and is now working full time as a goldsmith.
Jane’s style is whimsical, adventurous and rockish at one and the same time.
She’s freely mixing old, antique objects such as roses made of chorale, antique precious stones, tortoise shell and ivory and other unique stuff with modern materials and design and thus creates unexpected meetings.
Significant of her style is also the clash between everyday objects and precious materials, badges with strong symbols executed in precious metal and diamonds, or series of bone and horn e.g.
Jane gets her inspiration on her numerous travels, where she also finds local materials and objects, purchase foreign strange matter and stuff in order to unity them with her own Scandinavian tradition later on.

Apart from this she makes a collection twice a year with precious metal and stones.
