Luce Artist Quote

“Jewelers and metalsmiths perform an important function in our culture. We invest these objects with significance, and they go on to attain a life of their own as artifacts.” Jan Baum, Towson University Newsletter, 2002


Luce Artist Biography

Jan Baum is inspired by the history of ornamentation and how patterns have been used throughout time as personal expression. She creates large, intricate pendants that are designed to hang low on the wearer, standing out as a prominent feature of any outfit. Her pieces often employ simple mechanisms that allow us to interact with the design by opening, dismantling, or connecting the different parts.
