Jane Dodd trained in jewellery at Unitec graduating in 1994. After 15 years at Workshop 6 in Kingsland, Auckland she has now returned to live in her hometown of Dunedin. Her work is largely narrative - myth and storytelling being thematic concerns in her jewellery. Jane works mostly in metal but has, in recent times, also begun to include softer materials; wood, bone, stone, shell; thoroughly enjoying the change of tone, scale and palate the shift has allowed. Her work is held in public collections at Te Papa, The Dowse Art Museum and Hawkes Bay Museum.
