Designing this contemporary brooch for my client’s wedding anniversary was really exciting.

She wanted a large sculptural and versatile design, with movement and her favourite colours.

After researching Hindu wedding traditions, the design she chose was inspired by the identical flower garlands worn by the bride and groom at their wedding.

Technically challenging to make, this brooch includes abstract cloisonné enamel, hand made chain and filigree curving in 3 dimensions to add a sense of volume. The brooch can be pinned at different angles to change the look.

    I love it, love it, love it. Thank you Tara.
    This brooch means so much to me because the design is so personal and unusual. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding anniversary present to remind me of my happy marriage. Not only that, but the skill Tara showed in making the brooch is amazing especially using so many different techniques.
    I had never commissioned jewellery before but Tara made the process so easy. She listens really well and when she showed me her early designs I was amazed how cleverly she had told my story. She was always in touch while she was making my brooch and I saw it turn from an idea to a drawing to a brooch. Tara is incredibly talented.
    I wear my brooch with great pride and affection.
