Designer Dialogue: Sheer Addiction Jewelry

I first connected with Tamara and learned about her gorgeous jewelry line, Sheer Addiction Jewelry, over a year ago and I'm so excited to finally get the chance to share her story. A mix of vintage and modern, every item in Tamara's line looks like it came from hours of scouring through a centuries-old European flea market for the perfect find. Luckily, you don't have to travel far to score these treasures, visit and meet the designer below!

What's the story behind Sheer Addiction Jewelry?
I lived in Switzerland for 10 years where the combination of rustic elegance and architecture had a huge impact on my style. On my 40th birthday I headed to Paris where I happened upon a vendor who used gilded architectural pieces to repair mirrors from the 1800's. I had an instant vision of the brand I wanted to create. A collection of luxe jewelry with a mix of vintage brasses and modern design. 

Favorite item from your current collection?
 My current go-to piece is the Beaded Luxe Set. I travel a ton and this set looks different depending on how I mix it and never fails to brighten any gray or navy outfit. 

Who is the Sheer Addiction girl?
 The Sheer Addiction girl is adventurous, focused on those she loves and a bit fearless in chasing her dreams. 

You're based in the Twin Cities! What are your go-to spots?
 I LOVE the Twin Cities and the change of seasons. For winter I cross country and ski every chance I get (I'm still a Swiss girl at heart), Spring and Summer are perfect for dining at Solera on the rooftop while taking in an outdoor movie, come fall the banks of the St. Croix river are loaded with fall colors.

There's nothing that gets me more in the mood for the holiday season than a cozy sweater and this Chevron print one sent over by one of my favorite LA brands, Velvet, definitely does the trick! I'm loving their entire Holiday 2014 collection - knits galore (as well as some head turning sequin dresses)! See some of my favorites below.
