Jayne Baker began her artistic career early in life at age 12 selling macrame bracelets and necklaces to her classmates. Jayne began modeling and living in Chicago, married Brian and moved to Ft. Myers in 1981. They soon opened the award winning Mad Hatter Restaurant on Sanibel Island, then later Jaynes Victorian Garden Cafe in Ft. Myers. Jayne’s love of art and nature spurred her to create unique organic and natural food products as well as garden art and jewelry gift items for many years, selling locally and internationally.
Recently relocated to her home and studio in the SoCo area, Jayne is currently showing her new collection of one of a kind, upcycled jewelry using assembled bits and pieces, including gemstones and crystals, in the Alliance gift shop. Being the multi-talented artist that she is, she is also busy creating vintage crystal and glass adorned stepping stones; bead and shell topped pillboxes; recycled garden furniture, shell mirrors, jeweled frames and many more projects in the planning stage.
