Tara Locklear
Graduated 2012

Inspired by urban landscapes, Tara Locklear’s designs are comprised of industrial and re-purposed materials, which she uses to create playful visual language in the form of jewelry. In these conversations, color and texture are more than surface aesthetic qualities; they are emotional connection points from the material to the viewer. Her affinity for color and bold shapes are a reflection of years of her pop culture influences. Tara’s focus is to create fine hand-crafted jewelry that empowers individuality and brings a refreshing point of view to field of contemporary jewelry.
