Jenne Rayburn

Jenne Rayburn is a metalsmith, enamellist, and seasoned designer who studied interior design and architecture. For Jenne, the creative process is about making connections between past and present, between art and emotion, and mixing styles and materials to re-imagine new narratives that still have a sense of history. Fascinated by ancient handcrafts and jewelry, the ornament of indigenous peoples, and interpretations of nature, Jenne loves myths and folk stories that recount heroic adventures and strive to express the mystery and complexity of the human experience. Jenne studied fine art and architecture at the University of Washington where she was introduced to metalsmithing and textile design. She received the M.S. degree in Design from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She has taken intensive workshops at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and at the Metalwerx School for Jewelry and Metal Arts. Jenne grew up in Washington State and now resides in Melrose, Massachusetts. She shares (and co-designed) a modern house overlooking an overgrown garden and English roses, with her sweetheart and their two sons.
