About Sandy Baker: Among her many achievements, Sandy's work is included in the Design Archives of the Smithsonian. Her work appears in several books including BRILLIANCE!- Masterpieces of the American Jewelry Design Council. Most recently she was named one of the top 100 American jewelry designers of the last 30 years by National Jeweler magazine. Currently her work is part of the touring exhibition, Variations On A Theme: 25 years of Design from the American Jewelry Design Council - now on view at The Gemological Institute of America in California.
Sandy's style is straight forward, sculptural and modern. She has always designed with today's woman in mind, creating pieces that are both strikingly beautiful, and seamlessly adaptable to the demands the day. Kinetic movement has long been a hallmark of Sandy Baker earrings, often incorporating elements that gracefully move with the wearer, catching light and adding a bit of flare.
Sandy Baker's passion for the arts started long before her entry into the world of Fine Jewelry. Sandy received her BFA Degree from Hunter College and went on to get her Masters in Printmaking with a minor in Art History at Columbia University.
In 1968 Sandy started her career at Ashanti Bazaar, a chic Black-owned clothing boutique in Harlem. She worked there part-time while in college, at that time designing clothes and jewelry for herself exclusively. When she started in Fine Jewelry, Sandy was the first and only African American woman working in the Industry.
With her business in full bloom, in 1972 she moved the operation from her home to a building in Manhattan. By the 1980s her exploits had begun to garner considerable attention, with her designs gracing the pages of VOGUE, GLAMOUR, Harpers Bazaar, Essence, and other leading publications. Also during this period her designs were worn by a then up and coming actress named Julia Roberts.
