“People want pieces from artisanal jewellers who are sitting at the bench themselves. They want the stamp of someone’s fingerprint on a piece.”
DESIGNER AND JEWELLER
Tara Lois is a rarity in the jewellery world
Tara studied contemporary design at a leading Art School, ranked in the top 1% worldwide.
In contrast, she trained in traditional fine jewellery making, taught by world class Master Goldsmiths.
Her multi-cultural upbringing in France, Scotland, England, USA and Malta, as well as having studied art/sculpture, brings a distinctly cosmopolitan influence to her work, and drives her commitment to sustainability.
Although creativity and craftsmanship are important, Tara Lois’ greatest strength is the bond she forms with her clients, the trust and honest surprise they experience when they see the final jewellery.
As a mark of her talent, Tara has been winning awards for her jewellery since she was only 18 years old, when she won a prestigious Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council Award (an “Oscar” of the British jewellery world).
Since then, she has also won the Goldsmiths’ Centre Award for Excellence in Craftsmanship, two 1st prizes in the Smart & Sustainable Business Awards and Malta’s Emerging Maker Award.
She also has a BDes (Hons) in Jewellery & Metal Design from DJCAD at the University of Dundee.
Running an ethical business in Malta is central to our philosophy. We have won several national awards for our sustainable manufacturing and workshop practices.
All of our packaging has been sustainably designed. Our handmade jewellery pouches, are created from organic textile, printed with our own unique design using environmentally friendly dyes.
