Hi there, I’m Tara.
I’m the founder and creator of By Tara Louise. I live in Penrith, in Western Sydney. I design and create colourful little artworks that you’ll feel fabulous wearing every day.
Since I was young, I’ve been experimenting with arts and crafts. I love wall art, sculpture, wearable art and digital art – basically anything colourful I can get my hands on! More recently I’ve grown especially fond of abstract painting and jewellery making, which led me to start my very colourful brand, By Tara Louise.
Every piece of jewellery is uniquely handcrafted in my home by me. I’m passionate about creating colourways you may not expect to see together and allowing my personality to shine through. Nature is my greatest inspiration; I see so many colours, shapes and patterns in everyday life, which I incorporate into my designs.
The pieces are made from polymer clay, resin, canvas and acrylic – a combination of beautiful materials I have fallen in love with over the years. Working with Polymer Clay allows for so much creative flexibility. I can create any colour, texture and shape I desire! I’m always buzzing with colourful new ideas.
I also have three young children with the two eldest in school, so I do a lot of work at night when they are all in bed. Our middle son was born with a rare chromosome disorder, I wouldn't be the woman I am today without him in my life. I love supporting other special needs mums, so if you ever need to reach out, please message, call or email anytime.
I hope you fall in love with my jewellery as much as I’ve loved making it. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line with any questions or just to say hi!
