Reviving Craft

Modern Heirlooms

Metalsmith Janeane Karbassi creates one-of-a-kind and limited run jewelry crafted to be passed down to future generations. Each piece is handmade in our Chicago shop with ethically sourced and recycled materials.

Janeane's process focuses on centuries-old techniques that give her pieces heart.  For her, handmade work is an extension of herself, an investment in the highest quality materials, and a desire to keep this art form alive.

Redbud Jewelry also gives back by donating a portion of profits to The Gem Legacy.

The Designer: Janeane Karbassi

Intentional Designs

Janeane started her professional life as an actress. After feeling burned out in her acting career, she took a beginning metalsmithing class “just for fun”.

That first class led to many more years of study, including time spent as a resident artist in India working with local craftspeople.  She launched her own line in 2013 and works out of her Chicago studio and storefront where she also teaches classes.

Her designs are inspired by the plains of Oklahoma where she grew up, her Chickasaw Native heritage, and the desire to keep fine craft alive.  


Izah Ransohoff

Izah is very excited to be a part of Redbud. They are a movement based performance artist, like to work with their hands, and love a good giggle. When they are not doing social media or jewelry production at the shop, they are probably dancing, eating ice cream, and exploring outside.
