Baker & Black
Whether it's a simple piece or a striking design, jewelry is one sure way to add something special to your look be it day or night, work or weekends. Most of the people I know have a simple piece of every day jewelry that really does make life easier when we're on the go. But, we also have those lovely works of art translated through metal and stone.
We recently learned about Baker & Black, whose jewelry is a beautiful combination of chic retro styles with a contemporary flair for today's woman. The line of jewelry is crafted by hand in the designer’s, Megan Baker’s, Brooklyn studio. She also enlists the aid of expert gem-setters in New York City's Diamond District to complete her pieces. Megan Baker, started her company in 2013, inspired by the Fine jewelry companies of the early 1900's. In addition to her colorful gems like orange sapphires, turquoise, and malachite, Megan also incorporates, at times, overlooked stones and shades to create vibrant, striking jewels that are not flamboyant but graciously original. From it's inception to final stage, each design takes about two months.
Megan uses recycled gold, which she sources from a century old mill in Virginia. Baker & Black is dedicated to social and environmental responsibility within the greater jewelry community. Megan is committed to the responsibility of this beautiful earth, which is her greatest resource and ultimate inspiration.
