The Grand Bohemian Gallery is hosting a special trunk show entitled “Moving Metals: Sterling, Gold and Gemstone Jewelry,” featuring SCAD alumna Kristen Baird's stellar metal and gemstone work. This new collection is designed exclusively for the Grand Bohemian Gallery and is nothing short of classically stunning.
There will be an opening night meet-and-greet artists reception on Saturday, June 11th from 5:30-8:00pm at the Grand Bohemian Gallery. The event will offer light hors d'oeuvres and is free and open to the public. A second opportunity to meet the artist will take place Sunday, June 12th at Second Sunday on King Street (corners of Wentworth and King Streets) from 1:00-5:00pm.
Kristen is originally from Richmond, VA. After graduating from Savannah College of Art & Design, she furthered her craftsmanship studies at the New Approach School for Jewelers in Tennessee where she studied under a consultant for Tiffany & Co.
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. She works with materials of the highest quality and crafts each piece by hand. She uses gold, platinum, and sterling silver with gemstones and pearls to create an interplay of texture and color that brings her beautiful and timeless creations to life.
