Designs by Baerreis Gallery & Jewelry by Elizabeth

Designing and making is what we do... We are a family of Artists and Artisans working in the European Art and Craft tradition. Our life is simple and centered around our work. We have exhibited in galleries, fine juried art shows and markets around the Southwest and Southeast for many years - now our work is available here and in our studio/gallery.

We feel that our life is a bit greener - this way, we put your purchase on the truck passing by...

Phil and Martha started making fun, functional, original items in wood in the early 1970s. You can order our original Hair Toys, Sculptural Boxes , Kitchenware, as well as our toys and puzzle boxes. We enjoy our work and hope you do, too!

Nathan, Elisabeth and George grew up in an environment of facilitated creativity looking within and to their environment for inspiration... surrounded by working artists and artisans at fine craft shows and juried art markets from the time they were infants.

Each item that we produce is designed and made by our hands, one piece at a time, in our studio workshops. We are located in the beautiful Southern Appalachian Mountain community of Coker Creek, between Tellico Plains and Farner, Tennessee. You can visit us most days at our family gallery/showroom next to our studios.

Generally, you can expect your piece to ship via USPS or UPS within 1 - 2 business days, unless a longer time is specified in the description!

When you purchase an item from us, you can rest assured that it was made by our hands, right here in the United States. As artisans, we remain competitive in today’s global marketplace.

We create each piece of work independently in many media including but not limited to wood, gemstones, glass, copper, bronze and silver... Some of us paint, sculpt, and do graphic design. We all love music and one of us makes exceptional original music..

Our work is original, and carries our signature. Our designs remain the intellectual property of the artist.
