Come visit my studio! Send an appointment request my way and I look forward to meeting you!

Hi, I’m Tara Montgomery, and welcome to my website! Here you will find a collection of jewelry that I design and make by hand from my studio in Charlottesville, Virginia. When I am not spending time with my husband and two children or working as an oncology nurse, I am at my desk playing with new designs or filling orders for brides, stores, friends, and family.

I am inspired by the beauty and elegance of simplicity, and it is my attempt to capture this in the jewelry I create. I focus on using high-quality stones and materials that are incredibly beautiful on their own and then elevate them further by forming the stones into pieces to adorn and admire. One of the many things I love about the jewelry born out of this process is its versatility. The same pair of earrings are elegant enough to be worn on a wedding day—and beautiful and functional enough to wear to work and out on the weekends.

I also love to share the design process with anyone looking for a custom piece. I have so much fun working with brides to discover what makes them feel beautiful and to help them come up with the perfect gifts for their bridesmaids, friends, and family. Husbands in need of gift advice are welcome here too! Feel free to message me through the contact page to get started.  

I hope you like what you see, and have fun shopping!
