Mind's Eye Design is an independent jewelry company based in and inspired by the beauty of Northern California. Tara Brown is the woman behind the designs. She has been making jewelry since 1989, when a high school art teacher introduced her to lost wax casting and soldering. She studied fine art and art history and has the artists equivalent to a green thumb. She uses her knack for design for everything from Easter egg decoration to festive flag making. Her years of making jewelry and just generally making ordinary objects beautiful have resulted in the creation of Mind's Eye Design: a jewelry company dedicated to sourcing the majority of materials used from U.S. companies and working with other small, independent manufacturers.
