Harmony, balance, and unity are the watchwords of jewelry designer Kristen Baird’s work. Kristen’s sculptural, one-of-a-kind pieces embody drama without sacrificing functionality. Her aesthetic pays homage to motifs found in nature—waterfalls, honeycomb, rain, flora—while also gracefully nodding to her interest in architecture. Kristen’s work displays a unique ability to meld disparate influences into jewelry that is structural but also seems as though it might have sprung organically from the natural world. Her work treats nature as a dance, never still and always changing, often capturing a transitory moment, such as the splash of water or the slow ooze of honeycomb. Underlying her inspirations is a design aesthetic that embraces minimalism and smooth, clean lines which allows her to seamlessly meld the natural with the man-made.

The values of quality and craftsmanship are integral to Kristen’s work. She works with materials of the highest quality and crafts each piece by hand. She uses gold and sterling silver with gemstones and glass to create an interplay of texture and color that brings her beautiful and timeless creations to life.

Kristen is originally from Richmond, VA. She graduated from Savannah College and Art and Design in 2012 and holds a BFA in Metals and Jewelry. Her work has been purchased by a number of influential individuals both in the United States and abroad. It can be found in several galleries including Singing Stone Gallery in Tampa, FL, Gallery 209 in Savannah, GA, and Shop SCAD in Savannah, GA. Kristen and her work have also been featured by Paprika Southern, Adobe, Behance, SCAD, Elle.com, and Lark Books among others. When not working on her upcoming collections, she enjoys CrossFit, running, traveling with her boyfriend, and playing with her kitten, Nugget. She currently lives and works in historic downtown Savannah. Read Less
