About – Jewelry with a Story…

Tamra invites you to enjoy her glorious glimmering garden of gems.  Stroll through nature’s brilliance and feast your senses on the abundant flora of semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, and vintage master pieces.  Savor the fragrance of her hand-crafted botanical-inspired jewelry.

Tamra has always loved jewelry and flowers. As a teenager, she would raid her mother’s jewelry box to discover the perfect pair of clip earrings, only to attach them to necklaces, creating an innovative accessory. Years later her love for florals, gems and vintage gave birth to Tamra’s A Touch of Vintage… a collection of custom-crafted jewelry which offers one-of-a-kind handmade designs assembled by mixing, matching, and manipulating new and vintage pieces.  Each eye-catching piece has its own special touch of vintage.  Now the world is her jewelry chest as she travels in search of those just right vintage pieces.  Her base materials range from gold to brass to sterling silver, and when she adds her special finds it results in an eclectic work of art with a distinctive flair for elegance.

Tamra’s sensitivity to God’s creations and His floral inspirations combined with her background as a silversmith and certified Master Gardener have afforded her unlimited possibilities in jewelry design.
She is not restricted to her own supply of baubles and beads though.  Tamra can style a client’s heirlooms that have been safely hidden away in a chest for years, forgotten and unseen, into a custom designed tribute to family history.  She envisions infinite opportunities to continue creating sensational jewelry sure to become timeless treasures of wearable art.

A Touch of Vintage is an altered couture bouquet of jewels… a little bit fun, a little bit funky… always elegant.
