The Story of a Jeweler: Tara Hutch

The one thing that makes Tara’s jewelry different is – her jewelry has a story behind it: Tara’s jewelry literally saved her and helped in the rebirth of her spirit. Tara is a wounded war veteran of the Army. She lost her leg on Valentine’s Day, 2006, while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Due to the subsequent brain injury from the explosion, she was left with a permanent Parkinson’s-like movement disorder, and during rehabilitation an occupational therapist suggested Tara become involved with a hobby that used her fine motor skills.

She decided to buy every book and read every article she could find on jewelry making, and she eventually taught herself difficult jewelry techniques. She crafts her one-of-a-kind jewelry out of gold, silver and fine gemstones and sells it on her website and at trunk shows. She is truly an artisan who handcrafts beautiful pieces of one-of-a kind wearable art. When people purchase a Tara Hutch original, they aren’t just buying a piece of jewelry, they are purchasing a bit of Tara’s spirit; a small amount of her ability to look beyond and overcome adversity.
