Tara Locklear, “Conversation on object-oriented ideals & perceived preciousness is foundation; style is derivative of iconic, mid century costume jewelry, & lowbrow cultural phenomena. I am drawn to sustainable, industrial components, reclaimed objects, & materials. Research, exploration, & formation of materials are core to my practice. Interpretation, evolution, & re-invention of adornment are critical concepts. My costume jewelry is redefined through contemporary vernacular. $342.
