About Tara Locklear

Inspired by urban landscapes combined with a passion for mathematics, Tara Locklear's designs are composed of social and architectural materials that create a playful visual language in the form of jewelry.  In these design conversations spoken through her community sourced and upcycled materials, color and texture are more than surface aesthetic qualities; they are emotional connection points between these materials and the viewer. Her affinity of color and bold shapes reflects her years of pop culture influences and how it formed the way she sees self-expression through jewelry. Tara's focus is to create fine, hand-crafted jewelry that empowers individuality through storytelling forms with movement, while bringing a refreshing point of view to the field of contemporary jewelry.
