Marjorie Baer



Over 45 years ago, on the steps of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, began the artistic career of Marjorie Baer. If fashion truly is art, then Marjorie’s jewelry designs are sought after for their unique and eye-catching appeal. Inspired by forms in the natural world, details of both African and Asian art, each piece is comfortable, versatile and made to enhance the style of the wearer. You become the canvas for her creative use of mixed metals, her attention to both comfort and detail and her originality in form and function.

All Marjorie Baer jewelry is made sustainably and ethically in her San Francisco studio. Marjorie works with a small group of innovative and skilled craftsmen to ensure the quality and wearability of each piece. Every item is constructed and assembled by hand with great care and attention to detail. Marjorie Baer jewelry is designed to be worn, so not only is it comfortable but it is hypoallergenic to avoid irritation even on the most sensitive skin.

We’re pleased to say that Marjorie Baer is featured at Sound Styles.

She was struggling with morning chores and being rather cranky about what the ‘so-called’ equal division of things to do around the house meant in actual reality.  Then her ears and demeanor picked up considerably, as she heard husband Robert suggest….

“I think you need to go spend time with girl friends today.”

A mere two rings of the phone when Leah picks up, “What’s up girl friend?” hoping that a coffee date might be in the works.

“Grab Kay.  Meet me at Sound Styles and we’ll go from there.  Let’s make an afternoon of it!” Cynthia exclaims.

Not to be eavesdropping or anything but we love to be the first point of destination for a girls’ fun afternoon.

Set some time aside for an Edmonds kind of day, grab a friend and come visit, see what’s new at Sound Styles.

Here she is in front of their hotel about to take the train to Porto to begin the fifteen day walk.  On the Portugese Camino Marilyn walked past terraced fields, lush forests, vineyards and peaceful sleepy villages until, fifteen days later, they reached Santiago.

Santiago de Compostela is the capital of northwest Spain’s Galicia region.  It’s known as the culmination of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route, and the alleged burial site of the apostle St. James.  His remains lie within the Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela, consecrated in 1211, whose elaborately carved stone facades open onto grand plazas within the medieval walls of the old town.

“Altogether we walked over 220 miles in 15 days.  My scarf was worn nearly every evening when we went out to dinner – it was both stylish (everyone wore scarves!) and practical, keeping my neck warm in the cool night air.  I also wore it frequently during the sightseeing phase of our trip when we visited Bilbao, San Sebastian and Barcelona.  Best accessory ever because it was no fuss, went with everything and dressed me up a notch or two!”

Thanks Marilyn for sharing your picture and adventures with us and we couldn’t agree more.

“Best Accessory Ever!”

How about it?  Grab your favorite scarf and let’s go for a walk!
