Tara Locklear

Tara Locklear is a studio jeweler born and based in North Carolina. Inspired by urban landscapes, she cuts up and repurposes skateboards to create a playful visual language in the form of jewelry. In these conversations, color and texture are more than aesthetic qualities; they serve as emotional connection points between the material and the viewer. Locklear selects materials for their graphic and color qualities, and for their inherent beauty and strength beyond their functioning identity. Her aim is to create fine, handcrafted pieces that empower individuality and bring a refreshing point of view to contemporary jewelry.
