Taryn O'Gorman handcrafts one-of-a-kind jewellery artworks from her studio on Vancouver Island. Taryn is a respected fellow artist and neighbour who lives right across the street from me! I have long admired Taryn's work and asked her to contribute one of her exquisite pieces to a photo shoot of one of my dresses.
The necklace shown here is a choker crafted in silver and fine gems.
Taryn believes jewellery is for ceremony - to celebrate - to mark personal triumph - it is a talisman, a trophy - it is deeply personal.
