Briana Erin, the Los Angeles based jewelry designer behind TAT2 Designs, has created a collections that is equal everyday and runway. Growing up as the daughter of a master sculptor, she was surrounded by an abundance of creativity, which has influenced her aesthetic from the start. Briana, a graduate of The Rhode Island School of Design, utilizes antique finishes that both distinct and personal. " I design for the woman who is hip and stylish, but not trendy; someone is bold, yet still sophisticated," says Briana.
Rather than interpreting the artist's palette in terms of color, Briana prefers to interpret in terms of metal gradients and antique finishes. TAT2 Designs incorporates an array of mixed metals such as pewter, brass, and copper, 24k gold and sterling silver plate, as well as Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, and leather. Coins, a signature accent that can be seen throughout the TAT2 collections, lends an air of classic charm to the line. "I love the texture and shape of the ancient coin, they never go out of style," says Briana.
