The endless Jemez ridges and the dramatic Pojoaque Valley skies inspire this year’s Claire Kahn. She invites intense loyalty because her clients know that a necklace or bracelet by Claire is more than jewelry. It is an expression of self. The wearer completes it.
“Claire has a mind for beautiful design in the way she has a mind for beautiful music.” Allison Barnett, co-owner of Patina Gallery
This year, a new spirit animates each piece, because Claire now works from her dream studio north of Santa Fe, where she moved earlier this year. Here she makes her beaded ropes luxurious through bold use of reds, blues, greens and golds – the very colors and textures of the tall grasses, wild birds and still ponds that define her peaceable kingdom, and your New Mexico.
Patina is Claire's exclusive global representative.
Peaceable Kingdom, Claire Kahn, starts in the Gallery and online, December 11th 2016
