Blanca Collection

Sherri Fairbairn, the designer for Blanca, was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia. Sherri attended Savannah College of Art and Design where she began to study Interior Design. She promptly refocused her studies on metal work, after falling in love with metalsmithing. She then received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design from East Carolina University, and her Master of Fine Art from Indiana University.

Sherri quickly earned national recognition for her work, which included a prestigious Hollowware Award, numerous grants, and full scholarships. She has studied under the vastly talented John Satterfield, Randy Long, and Roxanne Reep, who inspired her to teach metalsmith classes to others. Sherri’s designs have been exhibited internationally-from New York City to San Diego to London.

Sherri currently resides in Birmingham, Alabama, with her sons, Max and Jake. She has done it all; from designing high-end eyewear in Los Angeles, to specializing in custom jewelry orders through her social media pages. Beginning as Sherri Fairbairn Designs, Sherri then created a line under the name B. Knight Studio, found in local boutiques and available for purchase on Instagram. Sherri has now rebranded and her current work is known as “Blanca.” She can be found on Instagram as @shop_blanca.

When not designing jewelry, Sherri can be found spending time with her twin boys and exploring current design trends as well as classical architecture. After growing up on the coast, she also loves spending time on the water and specifically at the beach under her umbrella.
