New Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry by Marjorie Baer of San Francisco!

Just in: some fabulous new earrings and baubles by artisan jewelry designer, Marjorie Baer of San Francisco. Some of you might already know that Marjorie Baer's designs are sold in high-end department stores like Nordstrom across the country.

A little background bio on the designer herself: (from the Marjorie Baer official site) "As a jewelry designer, Marjorie Baer is always doing new and interesting things. Marjorie's career began on the steps of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art in the late 60's.

It was there that the recent Berkeley grad displayed her first group of hand-crafted necklaces, bracelets and earrings-the pioneering pieces that would lay the groundwork for 18 years of collections.

Although her style has evolved with the changing times, it's always maintained its original design concept: each earring, ring, bracelet is unique.

"I think my jewelry reflects both my love of art and my training in design. I am concerned with a sense of rightness in the way things are made - in the craftsmanship they reflect."

"I also strive for meaning in the pieces and for a feeling of cultural connection. The forms and look cannot be random; they have to make sense in cultural terms, connecting us with the symbolic heritage of our ancient societies and indigenous people. Each piece is made to last and resonate the enduring values that inspire me."
