About Tamara


Hello there! I'm Tamara and this is Max. My little family lives in central Massachusetts in a town that almost nobody has ever heard of. I am so used to saying the town, and then following with, “You’ve never heard of it before. It’s ok.” I didn’t start to learn to make jewelry until about 6 years ago when I needed to find something to do now that my children are older. I missed them so much and needed to fill my time with things to keep me busy. I took an afternoon class at a local craft center that was to teach us how to make some simple stacking rings and I was hooked! I bought myself a torch that very night when I got home.

Being so far from EVERYTHING really pushed me to teach myself new things that I am interested in. Thankfully there are some really great books, YouTube videos, and forums where one can teach themselves how to do *anything*. And that is exactly what I have been doing since. I enjoy thinking of something in my head, and then wandering into my back yard to my studio to see if my hands and tools can create it. 

I have a beautiful studio space above our garage in the backyard. I walk through our gardens every morning, look for little squirrels and rabbits to say hello to, and then I breathe in deep and smile every time I walk through that studio door and look at my creative space. I just love the wildlife that shares our home with us! Most of my animal themed pieces, especially the squirrels, were encouraged because of friends that live in our yard.

My family lives a vegan lifestyle because of our love for animals and that has spilled into all other areas of my life as well. I work very hard to ensure that my supplies, tools, stones, metals, and other materials do not harm or contain animals in them. It is a full time job! I promise myself and the animals that I will do my best while living my life to cause the least amount of harm. I am sure that you will notice my love for nature and all the living beings within it when you see my pieces. Many of them I create so that I can donate a bit of money to those that are also trying to help animals. That is one of the BEST things about my job!
