By 1975 I had completed my fundamental studies in jewelry design and began experimenting with various metals and techniques. I knew that jewelry making was my direction, my métier. Two years later Janis Kerman Design was established. The focus of my work for the next ten years was the design and production of limited edition collections, detailing for fashion accessories and unique pieces. Though I enjoyed the production years and the fact that my designs were available to many, my need to focus on unique pieces was determining the next era of work. Since 1986, I have been working exclusively in precious metals, gems and experimental materials.

"Thank you! I knew about "Hound Dog" and had heard it before but it was great to be reminded of it. WAY better than Elvis' version.
Just while we're on such niche music, here is one of my favourites from the era, "Sweet…"
