I love continually exploring new ways to create well-crafted, original pieces that will outlast and outlove many of the semi-disposable, mass produced goods that seem to be all around us now. In my imagination, beauty is trendless. It is about knowing ourselves, loving who we are, and celebrating our uniqueness. We weren't ever meant to be all the same.

My name is Tamara Mello and I live in Los Angeles. Most of the work I do is in creating custom charm necklaces. I work every step of the way with my clients and together we create a signature piece that is both beautiful and affordable. I use a combination of new and vintage charms in my work and often incorporate something my clients provide that has sentimental value for them.
The Crafty Katterbiller
I like to work with images that are very feminine and powerful and I like to use found objects as much as possible...currently I'm working on a series of beaded flowers in honor of characters from Alice in Wonderland.
