Inspired by the architectural marvel of the Roman ruins of Glanum, in Provence, these earrings capture Kristen’s structural imagination. The ruins are composed of massive boulders graced with intricate stone floral carvings. Wandering through the archways and alleys, you can almost hear the hustle and bustle of this ancient city.
The Glanum Earrings feature three textured boulder-shaped frames in descending size, with two hand-crafted blooms peeking through. Each geometric form is unique, like an ancient building weathered with time, but the overall piece is as light and flowing as the breeze.

The Bonjour Belle Collection is a whimsical recollection of Kristen’s magical summer spent as an artist in residence in Lacoste, France. Gather vibrant flowers from the provincial market. Duck behind ancient arched doorways for an elusive embrace. Brush fingertips against castle walls laced with fragile blooms, and gaze at the lush valley below. Here in her Savannah studio, Kristen brings her memories to life, melding southern imagination with a French fairytale.
These handcrafted earrings measure 45mm in length, by 30mm at the widest point, for a total hang length of around 55mm. Gemstone options may be available upon request. For your convenience, rubber earring backs are included with these dangle/ear-wire style earrings. To ensure balance of comfort and secure placement of your earrings, we recommend always wearing your pieces with the provided earring backs.
At Kristen Baird® Jewelry, we use partially to fully recycled sterling silver. The 18K gold used is certified 100% recycled and the gemstones we use are carefully selected in line with our commitment to social responsibility. Each piece is precisely handcrafted in our Savannah, GA studio, using a metalsmithing process called reticulation. As proof of authenticity, each piece is stamped with the .925 quality mark and whenever possible, is signed/marked with the Kristen Baird® maker’s mark, prior to delivery.
Due to the natural characteristics of handcrafted designs, each piece may contain slight variances from the photos shown. These variances allow uniqueness in every creation, but never take away from the quality of work or the complexity of design.
