The Sparkle Factory - Tarina Tarantino

When I was asked if I would be interested in receiving a review copy of Tarina Tarantino's new book, I was SO excited! I have admired Tarantino's work for a long time and is an inspiration to me when it comes to taking chances with mixing colors together and throwing a little kitsch into your work. LOVE HER! 

Photo The Sparkle Factory: The Design and Craft of Tarina's Fashion Jewelry and Accessories is a gem in itself!

Her book is very personable and I enjoyed reading about how she got started from fashion, doing make-up to creating jewelry and accessories which stems from her childhood.

Included in the book are 20 tutorials on how to make some of her signature pieces. The first one I did was her Jubilee Stretch Ring and now I'm kind of obsessed with making more.

Like Tarina's unique personal style, the book is so colorful and fun to flip through.



And it's not just jewelry, she shows you how to make some really adorable accessories like belt buckles, bedazzled eye wear, and cute little hats.


I love Tarina's story and her approach to finding fun little pieces to put together to create a mind-blowing piece to wear.  I definitely consider her a mentor as a business woman and designer.
