Jacek Baron - designer, creator and precursor of avant-garde jewelry

Written by 

 Today's article aims to present the silhouette of Jacek Baron, one of the precursors of avant-garde amber jewelery, not only in Poland, but also in the world. We invite you to the history of an innovative amber art, dating back to the 1980s.


      Jacek Baron has been designing and creating jewelery for over 30 years, and today his works are a considerable resource for several important muses and art galleries, including our Krakow Amber Museum.

      Today's hero began in the 80s, when there was a fashion for amber "eyes" in frames of blackened silver with floral motifs. During this period of drought on the market and the lack of modern jewelery art, there was the idea of creating something groundbreaking. Jacek Baron introduced a combination of silver sculptural forms with modern designs, previously unheard of, often of caricature size. Amber in these works complemented and emphasized form. A new approach to amber art has resulted in positive reviews both in Poland and abroad.

      In addition to shape, form or size, the art of Jacek Baron from the beginning distinguished the uniqueness and precision of the finish. It is so unique that one of the cuts of stone used by the artist bears the name "Baron Cut." The author individually adjusts the cut and binding, which makes each of his jewelry unique.

      In addition, the artist created a collection of mechanical jewelry. This means that amber in the jewelry of Jacek Baron creates modes that spin. Imagine a jewelry that can be set in motion! It is possible and available at your fingertips in our museum.

      The described achievements of Jacek Baron in the field of jewelery make that the author should be boldly regarded as one of the most important artists of the amber world. It is also worth emphasizing that they are not mass-produced works, and each product has its unique contribution, which emphasizes the uniqueness and individuality of the offered works.

We invite you to read the latest collection of Jacek Baron, about which you can read in the article: "The new collection of Jacek Baron."
