Falling in Love With TOMgirl Jewelry
Local San Francisco artist and crafter Taryn McCabe turns out the most amazing hand cut leather jewelry and accessories through her TOMgirl jewelry line.
I initially discovered her work at Renegade Craft Fair’s Holiday show last December, where I bought (the shorter version) of these Silver Leather Leaf Cascade earrings, and they’ve become my favorite pair! I can wear them with jeans & a t-shirt, but easily transition them to a more dressed up look, for a night out on the town. Seriously, they go with everything.
Finding her Etsy shop online, it was all I could do to not buy like 6 more pairs! The pair I have is all silver — one of my favorite colors… and so unique in that it’s silver leather, instead of metal — but I can’t wait to get my hands on some of her more colorful ones, like this sexy turquoise, teal and gold pair.
As a crafter myself, I appreciate that each piece is hand-cut. So much TLC in one little pair of delicate earrings. I love that.
Hint: My birthday is coming up and a new pair of TOMgirl earrings is at the top of my list! ;)
UPDATE: I splurged & bought myself a few new pairs! Here are a few photos of me rockin’em. I get so many compliments!
