Every Saturday I focus on a different artist that I admire. From potters to painters, chefs to collectors, seamstress to songwriters, lifestyle to lovers... anyone who set the paintbrush, pastry brush, hands and heart on fire to create. Those who inspire art to flow where it may.
Today I would like to introduce Tamara Schafhauser, owner of Sheer Addiction Jewelry.
A few years back when I was in Marburger Texas to help a friend in her antique booth, Tamara came by to say hello. As she talked about her jewelry making, with that gorgeous smile, I drooled over her jewelry, right down the front of her blouse.
Since then I have followed her, and am never disappointed.
"People connect and respond to handmade things
in a different, deeper way.
I seek out pieces with a soul and history,
and I love layering on my own point of view.”
Tamara has been creating jewelry for the last ten years.
She has a vast collection of new and old, one of a kind and eye catching charms, pendants, chains, precious stones and collectibles to create with. Tamara's inspiration is never in short supply.
Tamara mixes chunky with dainty,
silver with gold,
precious pieces with tarnished tins,
history with soul to wear to tomorrow's gathering.
Tamara's collections come from Paris and Belgium to New York's most hidden basement bead houses. Sheer Addiction Jewelry sources unique pieces of jewelry to create one-of-a-kind vintage jewelry.
Layers upon layers.
Collections gathered from many resources.
Tamara has a way of putting it together with such easy elegance.
Dress up or down it works.
The is a art all in itself.
I love when Tamara show's photos that say, "This made that."
Tamara, fell in love with jewelry design when she was studying abroad in Swizerland. She has turned that passion into an expressive art form. Possessing an eye for detail and a talent for identifying pieces that marry well.
Collecting and working at her craft is what Tamara and her staff do everyday.
The result: Pieces that are bold yet basic, sophisticated yet subtle.
Another thing I enjoy is when Tamara puts pieces she has created with outfits.
