Jan Stiles of Tres Elegante Designs

As a student of nature and architecture, designing unique,  collectible art jewelry has become my passion by incorporating  authentic materials and metals that complements one's personal style.

I create versatile statement pieces accented with richly colored semi-precious stones and lustrous pearls, fused with precious metals of silver, copper, bronze and gold. The colors and sparkle of these stones, along with an architectural approach to movement and 3-dimensionality, result in strong and beautiful wearable art. My specialties include the use of fine silver on saguaro skin, cholla bark and seed pods as well as the controlled chaos of reticulated silver, created with a torch.
