Santa Fe Artist: Gilda Baker
Gilda Baker started in the women’s clothing business in 1970. She opened her own boutique in 1985, in Newton, MA, carrying fashionable clothes, accessories, and jewelry. Gilda’s remains open in its original location. Married, and the mother of two and grandmother of four, she relocated to Santa Fe in 2002. In 2009, she started to design and manufacture jewelry locally. The initial line, called “Beads of Love”, consists of bracelets of antique African trade beads. In 2011, she added a new line, “Gilda’s Gewels”, of necklaces made of silver, gold, and diamonds, with as much vintage silver chains and silver and pearl pendants as are available. All items are truly “One-of-a-Kind”.
