About

bespoke and limited edition jewelry from the coast of maine

i'm an artist and designer musing on enamel, metal, pattern and ornamentation in rugged and gorgeous midcoast maine. i adore enameling and piercing a crisp, detailed silhouette. color, pattern, and shape inspire me.

i strive to explore and showcase the boundless potential of enameled metal in my studio work. 'vitreous enamel' is colored glass fused to metal in a hot kiln or by torch, and has a very long and rich history with virtues of permanence and durability to compliment its luxurious surfaces.

i favor experimental methods of developing contemporary detail and imagery with the tiny granules of glass, especially by combining printmaking techniques with traditional enameling processes.

i design and make all of my jewels in my cozy studio, nestled away in the coastal maine woods. i am continuously inspired by the everchanging landscapes, the history, and the maine way of life.

all kate bauman mess jewelry is individually made by hand in my midcoast maine studio. pieces may vary slightly and may feature marks of their making, such is the alluring nature of hand-made work. i take great pleasure in designing, piercing, forming, etching, enameling, and finishing each and every piece. relevant techniques and information will be noted in the description of each listing.

with your purchase of a kate bauman mess jewel, you are sustaining the ancient practices of enameling and metalsmithing and encouraging their growth and evolution in our contemporary world. thank you!
