Inspired by European and African backgrounds, Tamara’s designs explore the simplicity of forms. Embodied aesthetically through the repetition of simple forms to create complex designs.
Tamara concentrates on the ancient technique of chain making. She works exclusively in fine silver, for the purity of the metal and the durability it affords.
Along with traditional designs, Tamara’s contemporary chain designs tend to show more of her African heritage and incorporate texturing and weaving metal techniques.
