What you should know : In a way, the name Tara Moor explains a lot about what's behind the design and artistry in this handcrafted sterling silver jewelry collection. The brand is named after Tara, the Asian goddess of peace and protection, while Moor comes from Spain's Moorish period, when art, architecture and philosophy flourished through intense cultural exchanges.
Most of Tara Moor’s collections have a spiritual or cultural association. Each has a link to history or to nature. "For example, the Sahara Collection is named after the famous desert in Africa as the hammered thin lines remind you of sand dunes and the soft textures calm your mind when you touch them," Julia says. "It's almost therapeutic!"
"There is an intimate connection between the jewelry and the person who wears it."
