Congrats goes out to my pink-haired friend Tarina Tarantino! She just launched her first book all about fashion jewelry! Come inside to find out more!
I have been a fan of Tarina’s fashion accessories for a long time and had the pleasure of meeting her in Florida about four years ago. She has sent me a few of her pieces and everytime I wear them somewhere, people stop me to admire them. She makes the cutest whimsy one-of- a-kind hand crafted pieces and if you never heard of her, she is huge in Los Angeles where she is based. She also had a makeup line in Sephora too. In her first book, Sparkle Factory Tarina invites you into her world to learn how to make and wear beautiful and inspirational fashion jewelry.
Fashionistas, aspiring jewelry designers, and DIY lovers will learn how to make 20 of Tarina’s most essential pieces including statement earrings, cocktail rings, hair jewelry, stretch cuff bracelets, embellished spectacles, and more. I took my kids to meet her in Florida at a trunk show and she was too sweet to my daughter Dootie and she even signed my Barbie that Mattel made of her. If you are a jewelry lover or designer you have to check out her new book. Here are a few vintage pics of me and Dootie at her store event, too funny! xoxo
