Tara Maria Famiglietti is a New York City-based artist who believes every piece of jewelry should be a beautiful work of art as well as a conversation starter. Her passion for adornment was sparked early on by her parents, both sought after fashion designers who created bespoke clothing for such icons as Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Jimmy Hendrix, Diana Ross, Bianca Jagger, Barbara Streisand, and Diane Von Furstenberg.
When Tara designed her first line as a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology, the world quickly took notice. Her work made her a darling among women in fashion and entertainment, and New York magazine hailed her as a “Jewelry Designer to Watch.” Since then, she has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry to create one-of-a-kind pieces that have been sold in exclusive boutiques and department stores around the world.
Inspired by the years she lived on a sailboat, traveling through the French Riviera, the Amalfi Coast, the Balearic Islands, and the African Coast, Tara has a passion for mixing unpredictable elements with the finest, purest materials and precious stones. In the last few years, her focus has been on creating custom pieces for private clients, each one imbued with Tara’s signature bold elegance, an evocative homage to a life devoted to adventure and timeless beauty.
Some of Tara’s celebrated clientele include Madonna, Gisele Bundchen, Jessica Alba and Angelina Jolie.
