Charlottesville, VA | Exhibiting Since 2013
Tavia’s work has developed along with the changes in her career and family. Married to an entrepreneur, and now a mother of two, she is constantly working to keep taviametal a perfect match for her and her family. Sharing studio space with other metalsmiths and artists, Tavia thoroughly enjoys being at her studio creating her one-of-a-kind and limited edition jewelry. Working closely with clients, she loves designing custom jewelry – engagement rings, wedding bands, memorial objects, etc. – creating the perfect item. Inspired by the dichotomies in life, by memory, by texture, and by nature, Tavia designs and creates each piece of jewelry using carious techniques, including lost wax casting, cold and hot fabrication, die-forming, etching, raising, and stone-setting. Expressing her style of elegance with an edge, Tavia’s jewelry continues to enhance and refine as she grows through life.
