I make jewelry that reminds me of nature, flowers, ancient art, and oceans.
The weaving of silver and gold is a reflection of the baskets I have woven for years with my husband, Stephen Zeh. Each piece expresses my desire for beauty and function, and how it complements the character and style of the one who wears it.
In my Maine jewelry studio I use traditional jeweler's tools to draw, roll, forge, and weave gold, silver, and copper into works of art that can be worn.
It always gives me a thrill to see someone try on a special piece and it looks so good on them.
Tamberlaine is my real name. It is from an old Scottish name, Tamburlaine. My mother named me for one of my ancestors with the feminine form, Tamberlaine. Naturally, when I was a little girl my nickname became Tammy.
I live on my old family farm in the western mountains of Maine. For inspiration when making jewelry in my studio I enjoy flower gardening, hiking and skiing in the nearby mountains, bird watching, and gathering berries and mushrooms in the Maine woodlands. I especially enjoy trips to the coast of Maine.
