Tara Hirshberg started designing jewelry for herself. As a fan of backless dressing, she became tired of being unable to find jewelry made specifically for the back. Tara Hirshberg's lasso collections fills that void.
The simple yet surprising gesture of reversing the traditional necklace shines a fresh light on a unique body focus. A spiritual and philosophical departure from overt sexuality, Tara Hirshberg’s jewelry represents sensuality and an elevated feminine stance.
"I find a quiet strength in wearing a backless dress or shirt. I feel both confident and vulnerable at the same time. The strength that comes from softness is very interesting to me. I wanted to create jewelry that reflected all of these elements”.
Although conceived to be worn down a woman's bare back, tara quickly began wearing hers over her t-shirts, sweaters and jackets and then adapted her pieces to be worn down the front as well. A full line was quickly born.
The lasso collection can be worn with the pendant down the back and the gem in front or turned around and worn as a long charm necklace, one of Tara's favorites for everyday.
Elegant enough to be worn with a backless gown and versatile enough to be worn with jeans and a t-shirt, tara’s designs quickly become a key part of any woman’s wardrobe.
All pieces are made by hand in Los Angeles using recycled gold whenever possible.
