New York International Gift Fair debuts fall line from Sandy Baker Jewelry: Coral, sculptural influences define modern art aesthetic

 


New York, NY (BlackNews.com) — Sandy Baker will exhibit her new collection at the upcoming New York International Gift Fair at Jacob Javits Convention Center starting August 19. The long-standing fine jewelry brand is known for handcrafted Art-to-wear jewelry, including necklaces, bracelets, earrings and cufflinks with exclusive organic inlays.

The Fall collection introduces a new modernist twist enhanced with organic sponge coral. The unique ombre hue incorporates the season’s hottest color, a robust orange, with accents of cream and cola in each piece. No two are exactly the same.

Over the years Sandy Baker has redefined jewelry for a design-conscious audience. SBJ creates carefully crafted, dynamic, modern, clean-lined mini sculptures, many of which have kinetic movement.

Sandy Baker was one the first African-Americans to boldly enter the fine jewelry industry as designer and manufacturer. Her work can be seen in the following books – “500 EARRINGS-New Directions in Contemporary Jewelry”, “BRILLIANCE!-masterpieces of the American Jewelry Design Council” and “500 GEMSTONE JEWELS”.

“My customer wants engaging jewelry that makes a personal style statement and can be worn through the day and into the evening to fit her busy lifestyle, ” Baker says. Her busy female fanbase is always on the move, so pieces are specifically designed to be lightweight, easy to wear and comfortable.

Baker’s love of the natural world inspires her work. The rich variety of natural materials includes South Sea abalone, freshwater pearls, non-endangered sponge coral, marble, mother of pearl and horn, as well as the use of non-traditional combinations of materials.

Never one to rest on her laurels, Baker continues to do what she does like nobody else. The brand has fans and followers in all corners of the globe. Her work is available primarily better gift shops, galleries and museum stores.
