Who We Are

Member of the Society of North American Goldsmiths, a member of the Chickasaw Nation, and a lover of the tradition and craft of jewelry work. 

Modern Heirlooms

Goldsmith Janeane Karbassi creates one-of-a-kind jewelry crafted to be passed down to future generations. Each piece is hand forged and fabricarted 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.

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.  

Made in Chicago

In 2021, Redbud Jewelry moved into their studio and storefront in the beautifully renovated industrial building on Irving Park Road.  Make an appointment to shop the line or chat about custom work!
