Tara Mesa pieces evoke the timeless indigenous tribal values which give primacy to the earth and her gifts.
Harmony, legacy and beauty.
E lemental—that’s Tara Mesa, as every piece of our jewelry comes from the inspiration of nature. Copper, silver and brass are the essence of Tara Mesa, a triad that is the foundation of our collection, central to every piece we craft. Much as mind, body and spirit must be in balance, so too must the elements of style. From ancient times craftsmen have known the value of artistry in everyday life, creating apparel, furnishings and adornments to enrich lives with beauty.
Finding just the right elements to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary has always been a challenge—remains a challenge today. That’s why Tara Mesa carefully hand selects every element that goes into its jewelry.
Our designers painstakingly examine every stone and every setting, choosing only the very finest specimens, those pieces which complement and enhance each other to produce perfect harmony. It’s a daunting job, one that requires a keen eye, discerning taste and utter commitment.
This attention to detail and conscious decision to create lasting quality and value adds yet another quality to Tara Mesa jewelry. Uniqueness. That’s because every piece of Tara Mesa jewelry is handcrafted, which means no two pieces are exactly alike. Each bears the individual style of the artisan who takes the raw material and crafts it into something beautiful, something that adds that little something extra to life.
Our designers and artisans share a long history of craftsmanship. Generations of skilled artists who took great pride in their work, have passed along their techniques and more importantly, their passion for fine craftsmanship to today’s highly skilled creators. These fine artists, using traditional copper, silver and brass as their canvas have created masterpieces that would make their ancestors—their inspiration—proud.
Beautiful relationships, beautiful jewelry from the ground up.
When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.
It almost seems as though John Ruskin had Tara Mesa in mind when he penned those thoughts well over a century ago. It is love and skill—an enduring passion for beauty, an artist’s eye for form and symmetry, and an appreciation for the majestic artistry of Mother Nature that distinguishes the designers and artisans of Tara Mesa. Every piece of jewelry, every gemstone and every bit of precious metal is meticulously examined and re-examined to meet their exacting standards of quality—quality that will endure.
A man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.
Tara Mesa’s artisans represent a legacy of fine craftsmanship, possessing jewelry making skills bequeathed from generation to generation. That’s why each piece of Tara Mesa jewelry is truly a work of art, a mini-masterpiece to own and wear with pride.
