Tara Lofhelm is a jewellery designer and maker who has completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts and an Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology (Jewellery).

Working from her Melbourne studio, Tara explores textural repetition and contrast through primitive processes such as stamping and embellishment.

Constantly shifting and evolving, her pieces are meticulously crafted and focus on bold design and wearability. Tara's shapes form as a reaction to the making process; every strike of the hammer ensuring a unique outcome that illustrates the hand of their maker. Reflecting on ancient civilisations, Tara Lofhelm's jewellery aims to modernise time-honoured jewellery techniques and, in doing so, create a cultural artefact that preserves today's definitive moment in time.
