My name is Kristin, the owner and creator behind The Baked Clay Studio, located here in Portland. This business is my baby, birthed in April of 2020. When our state went into lockdown, I turned to art and creativity, a lifelong passion of mine. I found solace in creating, and I still do. I delved into clay and fell in love before even touching the medium. I was able to pull from my love of pop art, architecture and vintage, and pour that into my clay work. I spent hours/days/weeks, studying, testing, failing and eventually emerging with jewelry that I absolutely love. I don't create anything that I wouldn't wear myself.
Clay never ceases to amaze me, and I love every step of the process. Each pair of earrings is handmade by me, in my tiny studio in downtown Portland. There are MANY meticulous steps involved in the jewelry making process, but I have learned to love them all in order to emerge with pieces that truly reflect my style. My aim is to celebrate you - your skin, your smile, your hair and your beautiful shape. My earrings are lightweight pieces of art, meant to effortlessly adorn you. You'll wear them all day!
Thank you for joining me on this journey. I'm so happy you're here!
