Jan Homan


Jan Homan is a metalsmith and jewelry maker. She creates contemporary  jewelry art using gemstones and precious metals. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, carefully designed and crafted with the modern, sophisticated woman in mind. Her collections include pieces for both special occasions and everyday wear, and feature quality craftsmanship and attention to detail that ensure each piece is built to last.

Growing up in Ohio, her love for jewelry came from traveling to Colorado in the summers to visit her grandparents. The Rocky Mountains and the smell of pine always promised an adventure. Her Grandma, at 4'-11" and a hundred miles an hour, would take her to rock shops, silver mines and panning for gold. Her grandma collected jewelry, and they would sit in her room while she told Jan the stories behind each piece. At the age of 6, she gave Jan a little turquoise and jade ring and told her “not to lose it.” Decades later, it’s still one of Jan’s most treasured possessions.
