From Soldier to Designer (Tara Hutch Designs Q&A)

If you read our blog post from last month, you might’ve seen a not-so subtle ‘hint’ about a new line that we will be carrying very soon! Introducing Tara Hutch Designs.

Tara describes her designs as fine jewelry with an urban feel. She fabricates her jewelry with blackened silver and high karat gold, a process called Kuem Boo. She also uses semi-precious and precious stones to create her look.

As a young adult, Tara had no real strategy on what she wanted to do with her life so she began basic training. At the young age of 23, she enlisted and six years later, she led a squad during a deployment in Iraq. It was Valentine’s Day of 2006 and it’s a day she’ll likely remember forever.
