grafilage /graf-i-loj/ (n): The process of creation for Sandy Baker Jewelry’s newest line.

I coined the word grafilage to describe how my newest collection came to be—from my head to my heart, and then to my hand. The vision forms first: bits of compelling shapes and colors begin to emerge, combining into a more cohesive idea that resonates on an emotional level. As an artist, I often associate certain hues with events and feelings—reds are warm and exuberant, greens evoke memories and so on. Only then do I pull out materials and commit the designs to paper. My passion for beautiful things inspires my creativity, and with this collection I have free range to combine any forms and colors I can think of. All pieces have been coated with a clear veneer to protect their vibrancy and set in the exclusive Sandy Baker style, in sterling silver with my name along the bezel.

*Note: While durable, please protect your Grafilage pieces by refraining from display in direct, intense sunlight.
