tarina tarantino

Before she was designing kicky costume jewelry out of her L.A. studio, Tarina Tarantino, a former model, tried her hand as a makeup artist. That goes a ways toward explaining her love of wild color. (If you needed an extra hint, check out her famous bubblegum-pink hair.)

Tarantino’s playful jewels and hair accessories are lighthearted fun, as they have been since she founded her company in the minimalism-mad nineties.

The little things that you found ‘cute’ no longer seem the same. They slowly start to become annoying with a capital ‘A’.
