Rae Ann Bayless is the owner, designer and artisan behind Rae Ann Creations. For more than 25 years, she has dedicated her craft to the idea of jewelry as wearable art. Approaching jewelry making with the eye of a painter,  Rae Ann adds the tactile sensibilities of a sculptor, combining mysterious rich colors and wonderful textures – with just a touch of the exotic. In this way, each piece becomes an expression of personal adornment, a signature of the wearer. 

Rae Ann designs jewelry for the fanciers of the contemporary as well as the classic. Her necklaces, bracelets and earrings reveal the inner life of precious and semi-precious gemstones, fresh water pearls and shells, precious metals, glass and crystal. All her designs are individually handcrafted in her West Little Rock studio, a space laden with the anticipation of ideas waiting to be fulfilled.

Rae Ann has hosted numerous jewelry Trunk Shows in several states, including one at the Page Museum at theLa Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, California. She has been published in Bead Trends Magazine, which features the hottest trends in beads and hand-crafted jewelry.

Rae Ann's designs can be found at the Arkansas Arts Center Museum Shop in downtown Little Rock, AR; Compliments Gallery in Kennebunkport, ME; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art Museum Store in Bentonville, AR; Gallery 221 in downtown Little Rock, the Museum of the Arkansas Grand Prairie in Stuttgart, AR, The Red Beauty Lounge in the Heights, Little Rock, The Art Fix in Heber Springs, AR and the Wichita Art Museum Store in Wichita, Kansas.
