|Hi, my name is Tara. I have had a fascination
with jewelry as long as I can remember. I
loved going through my mother's and
grandmother's jewelry boxes. I was especially
intrigued with their charm bracelets and what
each charm represented. I attribute my
creative passion to my mom. I grew up with a
mom that was extremely crafty and creative,
she made everything, she was a fantastic
gardener and decorator, she made all my
clothes as a child, and she never left the house
without jewelry on.
My goal is to make timeless, everyday pieces
that will be treasured for years. For all of you
out there who don't want a mass produced
piece of jewelry, I offer one of a kind works
of art. Each piece is created to have an organic
feel and rustic beauty that can only come with
handcrafted jewelry. My designs are inspired
by my travels, watching the sunset over the
horse pasture, and enjoying the simple beauty
of nature that surrounds us. By incorporating
the beauty that nature constantly offers us, I
feel that my pieces of jewelry have an appeal
to the artist in all of us.
Although I love making jewelry, it is not my
first passion. Horses are, which are the
inspiration behind my equestrian line. I live in
southern California with my wonderful husband,
Chad, and two dogs.
No gift is as genuine or thoughtful than one
that is handmade.
