About the Designer
Tamara Berg, owner and designer of Tamara Jewelry, began designing as a child. These early works began what would prove to be a long artistic journey, as she would continue to work in many different mediums. Tamara’s feminine and sensual jewelry evokes a feeling of romance, mystery and passion – while still maintaining a sense of energy and sophisticated fashion. Her appearances on HGTV and the DIY network, as host and lead designer on Plum and Verdigris, on TVWeekly.com as well as in videos on her own blog (www.TamaraCentral.com), has inspired other artists and designers around the world. Currently residing in Los Angeles, Tamara hails from Northern California.
