Yellow & Mint Necklace

Sustainable Wood


Jane Sedgwick’s Yellow Sycamore and Mint Driftwood necklace is a fun, zingy, geometric piece that is light to wear. The necklace is made of sustainable wood that Jane hand paints and hand turns herself. It’s threaded on organic cotton cord,  dyed with natural pigment.

Jane Sedgwick is an independent artist and jeweller living near the North Norfolk coast. She is one of our GroundJewels selected artists.

Sustainable materials

Jane harvests the sycamore sustainably from her woodland, she also finds and repurposes many materials. Her work is to reveal and celebrate their aesthetic and tactile qualities. It’s part of the story how each piece ages and wears with time. Jane collected and treated the sycamore for the Yellow and Mint Necklace. She also mixes the dyes herself with organic ingredients.


Research into the geography, history, and natural materials relating to specific locations form the narrative of her jewellery. Jane also draws inspiration from folk art, toys, customs and costume.  The geometric forms, repetition and colour are particularly evocative of the qualities of modernist artworks.

Jane studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art Dundee and then gained her masters at the Royal College of Art. In 2020 the Craft Council selected her to participate in their Hothouse programme.
