Kristen Baird \ Collection
Harmony, balance, and unity are the watchwords of jewelry designer Kristen Baird’s work. Kristen’s sculptual, 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.
